Comedy duo Key & Peele make their big-screen debut in Keanu. Read up on the stolen-cat comedy and this week's other new releases in our In Theaters section, where you can watch trailers, buy tickets, and more.
This lost 1918 drama was produced by the Vitagraph Co. of America, starring Alice Joyce. I was able to find an original film review from the Moving Picture World to share with the reader.
The Story: Frank Merrill, a Great Lakes pilot, loses his life in a storm and his wife, Edith, to support her child leaves for the city where she steals and is imprisoned. Three years later, upon her release, she takes her child from the state orphanage and goes to another city where she secures employment in a department store. She marries the superintendent, Jim Roberts. Mabel, who served time with Edith, is freed and arranges with Mickey Bill to enlist the aid of Edith in a robbery under threat of exposure. The burglary is committed, and when Mabel is trapped Edith, rearing a revelation of her past, says that she is responsible. In a trap laid by Detective Jordan to get Mabel the truth comes out and Edith's past is laid bare to her husband. He forgives her and the thieves are rounded up.
