It concerns "The faithful devotion and self-sacrifice of an old negro servant," who is played in blackface.

His Trust and His Trust Fulfilled are two one-reel films directed by D.W. Griffith in 1911. They were meant to be played as one story but due to technical limitations of the day were released separately.

It is a somewhat touching story of an old African American man, an Uncle Tom-like character who takes care of the daughter of his dead master. Many of the battle scenes are precursors of what Griffith would do later in Birth of a Nation and his attitudes towards race, while not as pronounced as in that later film, are quite apparent.
