Storyline

A bachelor, coming home one night under the influence of liquor, discovers a burglar taking his silverware. In his drunken condition he makes the robber put back the spoils and also promises him a position as butler if he will give up his profession as a burglar. He agrees. A few months later the bachelor marries a woman who falls heavily in debt playing cards. The woman to whom she owes the money is insistent, and matters come to a climax when at a card party in her own home she notices a guest drop her purse. She picks it up and when the loss is discovered the owner demands that everybody be searched by the detectives summoned. In the meantime the wife has given the purse to the butler for safe keeping. In this picture we are shown what gratitude really means and the sacrifice possible in the least of us. The burglar has paid his debt and the woman has learned a lesson.

It is not a very effective offering
27 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

We cannot place where we saw this picture before, though we remember it, as far as the outline goes, distinctly. There have been a number of pictures like it, but none that we have seen within a year. It was produced by L.S. Dawley. Sidney Ayres plays a young man who is rich and drinking too much. Charles Sutton plays an ex-convict whom he finds stealing his silver and persuades to reform and take service with him. Jessie McAllister plays the girl he marries. She gambles, gets into debt and steals from one of her guests. To save the "master," the old "man" takes the blame. It is not a very effective offering, although it is well set. The photography is not clear-cut and is often flat. - The Moving Picture World, April 19, 1913
