Filmed in Germany, the three-reel Desperado of Panama may well have been as hokey as its English-language title. The central character is a European spy who hopes to steal the plans for the Panama Canal (What for? So his country can build its own Panama Canal?) The hero, a handsome young building contractor, intends to prevent the villain and his henchmen from carrying out their nefarious scheme. A fierce gun battle ensues, resulting in the death of the heavily ventilated bad guy. German exports like Desperado of Panama would become fewer and farther between as WWI raged on.
