The Old Bookkeeper (1912)
A beloved old man is fired by a new manager who wants to give the bookkeeping job to his friend. Trying to contact his employer, who doesn't know about the firing, the old man foils a robbery at his employer's house.- Written by Anonymous
The old bookkeeper is the beloved of not only his employer, but the fellow employees on account of his generous, benevolent nature. He believes in the Biblical injunction, "Give to him that asketh thee." His salary he dispenses in charity, always ready to help the afflicted. His employer goes on an extended auto trip and leaves his business absolutely in charge of a new manager, who immediately finds a reason for discharging the old bookkeeper. The poor old fellow, unable to secure another position, and having used his money in charity, is without that with which to pay his rent, hence he is evicted. Without shelter, he goes to his employer's house to wait his return, which is expected. Here he surprises a couple of burglars and holds them at bay in a most unique way until help arrives.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
