Shame is a 1921 American film directed by Emmett J. Flynn. It is based on the story Clung by Max Brand, which appeared in the magazine All Story Weekly (10 Apr - 15 May 1920 edition)[1].This black and white silent film was distributed and produced by Fox Film Corporation. It is considered a drama and has a runtime of 90 mins.[2] It is presumed to be a lost film.[3]


William Fielding, a missionary in China, loses his wife after she gives birth to a son named David. He then marries a Chinese woman named Lotus Blossom, who treats the child as if it were her own. A trader named Foo Chang is madly in love with the woman. Believing the child to be hers, he kills William and brands David. Lotus Blossom commits suicide as a result. However, Li Chung, aware of the child's true parentage, takes David to the home of his wealthy grandfather in San Francisco. There, the boy befriends Li Chung and later inherits his grandfather's business and the Fielding estate when he becomes older.

David marries an American woman named Winifred Wellington. Following David's marriage, however, Foo Chang appears. He is now the head of an opium ring and tries to bribe David to help him bring a cargo of opium into the city. When David refuses, Foo Chang tells David that he is half-Chinese. Although he has no proof other than the brand on David's arm, that is enough to convince David. He goes to pieces and flees with his infant son to Alaska.

Winifred goes to Li Chung, who kills Foo Chang and also promises to take her to David but not telling her about her husband's true ethnicity. Li Chung only reveals the truth when Winifred is reunited with her husband. The family returns to San Francisco to live happily ever after.[1][4]
