One More American is a 1918 American silent drama film directed by William C. deMille and written by Olga Printzlau and William C. deMille.

As described in a film magazine, after five years separation Luigi Riccardo (Beban) learns that his wife Maria (Manon) and daughter Tessa (Giraci) are going to join him in America. Although legally not a citizen, in his heart Luigi regards his adopted country with reverence and his refusal to pay graft to Boss Regan (Carpenter) results in his wife and daughter being held at Ellis Island upon their arrival. Through the assistance of some detectives from the district attorney's office, the Regan scheme is exposed and Luigi's wife and daughter are permitted to enter the country and join him.
