Veteran German actor-writer Fritz Wendhausen assumes the mantle of director for The Trial of Daniel Westhof. The title character is a trouble-prone patsy who ends up being accused of murder. All he'd wanted to do was prevent the marriage of the heroine to a nasty moneylender, but things turned ugly when the villain ended up dead. At his trial, Westhof looks like a dead duck, but suddenly the hard-nosed prosecuting attorney breaks down and confesses that it was he, and not Daniel, who committed the crime. Strange, strange stuff, made stranger by the implication that the "hero" is a half-wit.
