~Other Men's Shoes~
1920
~Plot Synopsis~
Stephen Browning, a minister in a small city, is unable to cope with the strong opposition in his
parish, which is fostered and led by Raphael Creeke, his rival for the love of Irene Manton.
Meanwhile, James, Stephen's brother, is released from prison after serving a term for borrowing
money to lend to a friend's sick wife and child, and upon hearing of his brother's tribulations
decides to act as the minister's substitute. After Stephen goes to a neighboring farm to recuperate
from a nervous breakdown, James assumes his brother's identity, inspires the confidence of the
congregation, discovers Creeke's conniving and wins Irene's love. With the help of a blackmailer,
Creeke attempts to expose James's record, but his scheme backfires when the minister wins the
support of his congregation by admitting his true identity. Stephen is murdered by Jacob Dreener,
one of Creeke's accomplices, who mistakes the minister for his brother. James is then left to occupy
his brother's shoes permanently, bringing Creeke to justice and winning Irene for his wife.
