*"The Spy is a 1917 American silent thriller film directed by Richard Stanton and starring Dustin Farnum, Winifred Kingston, and William Burress. It portrays the actions of American spy who travels to Germany during World War I to get hold of a list of German agents active in the United States. He succeeds with the help of a local woman who falls in love with him, but both are captured and executed.
Although the original production ran for 8 reels, it was sometimes reduced to six in certain regions probably due to censorship of some scenes. In Chicago it was banned due to scenes of graphic violence."
