Synopsis
LINE

None So Blind shows how gingerly American cinema in the 1920s dealt
with Jewish-Gentile conflicts, yet its ending is clearly a plea for
integration and assimilation. In the film, Aaron Abrams' daughter Rachel
marries Russell Mortimer, a Gentile socialite. However, Mortimer's
father demands that the marriage be annulled. After giving birth to a
daughter, Rachel dies of sorrow and her father vows revenge against
the Mortimers. He raises his granddaughter, never revealing who her
father is. In the ghetto, Abrams is charitable, respected, and adored by
his granddaughter while on Wall Street, he is an unscrupulous
moneylender plotting revenge on Mortimer.
