The Power of Love is a 1922 silent film directed by Nat Deverich. The film is most notable for being the very first 3D film in the world. The film itself was a melodrama revolving around a girl named Maria betrothed to a criminal, and falls in love with a man he wounded [1]. The fate of the film is unknown, and is most likely lost to the ages after it's only showing, and not even publicity stills seem to exist.

The film was also re-released in 1923/24 in 2D under the title Forbidden Lover, which is also lost.
