A 1917 silent film about the Revolutionary War directed by Robert Goldstein, the owner of a costume shop in Los Angeles. He was tried and jailed under the harsh terms of the Espionage Act because his film prominently featured the atrocites of the British, our allies in World War I. After three years in jail, he moved to Europe but failed to find success there. The luckless Goldstein probably died in the Holocaust, a victim of both American and European anti-Semitism.

"I am merely a lone man suffering a great wrong for no reason whatever, can you refuse to help me obtain justice? I have never done the slightest thing to warrant this persecution and prejudice against me, which denies the very right to exist. What, in the name of common sense, can be the reason for such wanton injustice?"
