entertaining early "gangster" film with a moral
18 May 2005 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Two men are released from prison. One has his wife waiting for him, and he promises to go straight, taking a job at a building site. The other almost immediately sets about starting up a counterfeiting operation. When the married man is treated to a beer by his friend, and the friend pays with a bad coin, it could mean trouble for him.

Detectives enter the two men's apartments and search them without warrants. They did have warrants back in 1912, didn't they?

A little morality play that sends the message that crime never pays, and that prison can be a reformatory experience for some. Mary Pickford plays the wife, and Christy Cabanne, more known as a director, plays one of two tramps.
