Heart of Humanity, The
The Heart of Humanity is a 1918 American silent World War I propaganda film directed by Allen Holubar and shows a few equal action strands like D. W. Griffith's Hearts of the World. The story is about Nanette, an American girl living in a small Canadian village, who is in love with John Patricia, the eldest of five brothers. The war interrupts their romantic idyll, as everyone goes overseas to Belgium and France. Nanette becomes a Red Cross nurse and is terrorized by the German Lt. von Eberhard.
The following weapons were used in the film The Heart of Humanity:
German Lt. Eric von Eberhard (Erich von Stroheim) is seen with a Luger P08 pistol during the trench fighting.
