Shackles of Gold is a 1922 American silent drama film directed by Herbert Brenon and starring William Farnum, Alfred Loring, and Marie Shotwell. It is an adaptation of the 1908 play Samson by Henri Bernstein with the setting moved from France to America.[1] The screenplay involves a woman from an aristocratic but poor family who is pressured by her relatives to marry a wealthy financier.


As described in a film magazine,[2] John Gibbs (Farnum) is a dock laborer but rises to wealth by speculation in the oil market. He marries Marie (Bonillas), the daughter of Charles Van Dusen (Loring), but she consented to the marriage solely because the family fortune was depleted and to maintain their social standing. John bears this quietly until he learns that his wife has gone to a cabaret with another man. John turns on his former friend, Donald Valentine (Griffin), and, while breaking him becomes, ruins himself. However, through the strange workings of the human mind, he wins the love of his wife.
