After Dark (1915)

"Old Tom" Dalton, whose wife was faithless to him while he was fighting in the Spanish-American War, is making a living by doing odd jobs. Bellamy, the man who betrayed Dalton's wife, is the companion of Norris, a gambler. These two have a young man. George Medhurst, in their power for debt. To save himself the young man forges his father's name, and falls in love with "Old Tom's" daughter. Old Medhurst dies. George inherits his father's fortune and marries Dalton's daughter, Fanny. But he leaves her because his money was inherited on condition that he married another girl, Rose. Bellamy tries to drown Fanny, but "Old Tom" rescues her. Rose restores George to Fanny. Bellamy and Morris, who held the forged check over George to blackmail him, are tracked down by the police, and Rose hands over to George the money he had forfeited by not marrying her. Old Tom quits his nomadic ways and lives in happiness with his daughter and her husband.
