The Man Life Passed By is a 1923 American silent drama film directed by Victor Schertzinger and starring Percy Marmont, Jane Novak, and Eva Novak.[1] The Novak sisters portray two sisters in the film.


As described in a film magazine review,[2] John Turbin is robbed of his invention by 'Iron Man' Moore. His mother dies, and his only friend is Miss Hope who, unknown to Turbin, is one of Moore's daughters. Because of her influence, Turbin saves the other daughter Joy. Mr. Moore is so grateful that he does the right thing by Turbin and he accepts the love between Turbin and Hope.
