Fisherman Daniel Gibbs (Walter Long), a brute and braggart, treats his long-suffering wife Sympathy (Marguerite de la Motte) like a servant. One evening, a furious storm sends waves crashing on the shore; upon the arrival of the dawn, it apÂpears as if Daniel (who had been away on a fishing expedition) has been lost at sea. One of the men who was aboard his boat appears, and reports to Sympathy that “Daniel was one of the first to go, Ma’am -a broken spar caught himÑ before it went to pieces.” Sympathy eventually weds the town’s new minister, the Reverend John Maiden (Harrison Ford, a popular actor of the era who is no relation to the other Harrison Ford). She has finally found peace, and she and john become the parents of a baby girl. Unfortunately, their happiness is short-lived: John receives a blackmail note, which states that Daniel is still aliveÉSHADOWS is highlighted by yet another masterful performance from Lon Chaney. “The Man of a Thousand Faces” is cast here as Yen Sin, a Chinaman and a heathen, who is barred from Urkey but who remains in town nonetheless.
