Man Who Stayed at Home, The
Director: Herbert Blache
This is the VHS release (see more).
SummaryA man who is scorned by all due to his failure to enlist is actually a secret agent. He rounds up a German spy ring and sinks a U-boat, thus proving his patriotism.
NotesSubtlety was not a characteristic of World War I-era cinematic efforts. Even after the end of the war, right and wrong were sharply delineated, and there was to be no doubt in the minds of the audience as to who in the movie deserved what fate. In general, patriots always prevailed, or died making a grand gesture; the enemy always behaved reprehensibly and received his just deserts.
