Cast & Crew
Fred Leroy Granville
Beryl Brentano's mother is in need of an operation but is unable to pay for it. Beryl goes for the needed cash to her grandfather, who has disowned her mother for marrying against his will. She obtains it and leaves, unseen by any of the servants; later that night, her grandfather is found dead, presumably murdered. Beryl, thinking her brother is the killer, offers no self-defense and is arrested, tried, and convicted of the murder. A year passes, and the butler tells the prosecuting attorney that the ghost of his master is fighting with his murderer. Upon investigation, it is discovered that lightning had sketched on the window a picture of the death of the grandfather, who met his end by no violence. Beryl, freed from prison, finds that her mother has died and that there is no trace of her brother. Through advertising she communicates with her brother, now a priest, and learns the truth: while he was quarreling with his grandfather, a bolt of lightning struck him dead.
