Storyline

Just as the bead clerk and his assistants are closing up the jewelry store for the day, a package containing a very costly necklace arrives by special messenger. The large safe deposit vault has been closed for the night and the time clock set. The head clerk is fearful to leave the necklace in the store and so decides to take it home. His actions have been closely watched by one of the junior clerks, with sinister and stealthy glances. As soon as the head clerk has gone, his young assistant hastily leaves the store and meets one of his pals, whom he tells about the necklace. It does not need a second glance to learn that his pal is a professional burglar and his interest in the necklace is very keen. Jordan, the head clerk, when he reaches home, puts the necklace in a small house safe. He has an engagement that evening, and is obliged to leave his wife alone.

Didn't lose its grip on the audience from the beginning
21 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A clearly told and perfectly produced burglar story that didn't lose its grip on the audience from the beginning. The acting that such a story demands is conventional. Florence Turner plays one of the important parts. Like the acting, the photography, the sets and scenes, everything that goes to make the offering natural and convincing, are of good quality. George Cooper plays a criminal janitor who knows that the jewelry store clerk (Leo Delaney) has had to take home some valuable gems, and, with the help of a pal (E.R. Phillips), burglarizes the house. The skull is thrown into the room by some medical students on a spree, and delays the thugs till help comes. L.J. Williams deserves credit for a new story, which is skillfully written up. Producer W.V. Ranous has made an excellent picture of it. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
