Storyline

The president of a suburban bank refuses a loan asked by one of the citizens of the place and "to get square" the man circulates a rumor that the bank is not in safe financial condition. The plan is so successful that a run is started in spite of the president's assurances and knowledge of his solvency. A young clerk in the bank, anxious to do something which will make the president favor his suit for the latter's daughter, hits on a plan to restore public confidence. With the girl he goes to an old nail mill and fills the empty coin bags from the bank with nails. Just as the last money is being taken from the vaults and the depositors are frantic, they see the youth and girl drive up guarding with shot guns an express wagon apparently loaded with bags of bullion. Confidence is restored by the sight of so much ready money and, of course, the president feels enough of the same quality to endorse the young man's aspirations cordially.

How a young bank clerk saves the bank
27 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Good comedy-drama. It is a story of how a young bank clerk, in love with the daughter of the bank's president, saves the bank during a run by bringing in many coin bags filled with nails. Mdrc MacDermott plays the role of the man who started a run on a bank because he was refused a loan. Robert Brewer is the bank president. The acting of the entire cast is excellent. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
