Sessue Hayakawa in His Birthright

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sessue_Hayakawa

 

This silent movie is something like a sequel to "Madame Butterfly". Hayakawa plays the son of an American officer and a Japanese woman who committed suicide after being abandoned by her beloved. The son grows up and travels to the United States to avenge his mother. However, he discovers a German spy plot against America and changes into a red-white-and-blue patriot instead.
