A now-obscure firm called True Features Film Company was responsible for the American distribution of the German-filmed drama Doom of Darkness. The film was the brainchild of actor/director Theodore Burkhardt, an American actor then living and working in Berlin. The central character is a brilliant surgeon who must face the prospect of total blindness. Despite his affliction, the surgeon insists upon remaining on his job, which decision seriously jeopardizes the well-being of his patients. Finally resigning himself to the "doom of darkness," the hero magnanimously gives up his much-younger sweetheart, whom he has sensed is in love with his own assistant (for, as everyone knows, blind people in the movies can always sense things that "sighted" people can't).
