Storyline

Walter Young and John Osgood were both in love with Alexia Trexell, daughter of the president of the trust company in which both young men worked. Because Alexia preferred Young, Osgood stole four hundred thousand dollars' worth of securities out of the vault, and entering Young's room, left an incriminating handful of the bonds under a table. Young, apparently the only man who could possibly have taken the bonds, was arrested; the bonds were found under the table, and Young was sentenced to a long term in prison on the strength of the overwhelming mass of circumstantial evidence. Osgood was now able to recommence his suit for Alexia with a reasonable prospect of success. But unfortunately his path was not yet free from difficulties. On his way to Young's house with the securities. Osgood had unwittingly dropped a card case which contained incriminating evidence.

The production is finely acted and well staged
11 February 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

At the end of this two-reel story the innocent man, who has been imprisoned, is released on bail, pending a new trial as soon as it is discovered that he had nothing to do with the crime for which he was punished. This attention to the formal custom is praiseworthy. Some will wonder, perhaps, how Usakoff avoided going to jail as an accomplice. The story is of an accountant who robs a bank and fastens the crime on the cashier, his rival. The accountant is eventually uncovered through an accessory, after the fact falling in love with the woman the thief was trying to win. The exposure quickly follows. The strategy of the heroine does not seem of a particularly high degree. The production is finely acted and well staged, the court scene especially being worthy of mention. - The Moving Picture World, December 20, 1913
