Much later the rent collector is charged with theft and to also flees aboard a ship to the U.S. Paddy has done well in America, and sent his wife the money needed to join him there. She and the villain are on the same ship and she recognizes him and has the ship's wireless operator send the New York Police a message that the wanted-man is on the ship. When the ship docks, the rent-collector is met by Paddy, who is now a NYC policeman, and Paddy arrests him.

Getting There

In this short from 1908, directed by Wallace McCutcheon, we can begin to see signs of what D.W. Griffith would achieve over the next ten years. With Billy Bitzer behind the camera, we see the standard Biograph composition, and with Griffith in front of the camera -- along with Edward Dillon, who would become a member of his acting company -- the stage is set -- even though the acting is still over the top.
