Its worst fault is the rather unpleasant hardness of the old financier
8 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It was a big vault in a financier's office and a little girl (Baby Rosanna) the granddaughter of the financier got locked in. The financier had never seen the child. He had disowned his son for marrying beneath him. The son's wife, mother of the child, also unknown to the financier, had obtained a position as cashier in the office. She was working alone, overtime. The husband brought the child there to see why mamma was so late. He left them for the time and the child crept into the vault and the mother, not knowing it, locked her in. The father returns just then and, in a very tense series of scenes, hurries and compels the reluctant grandparent to come and open the safe. The picture is dramatic. Its worst fault is the rather unpleasant hardness of the old financier who could, even for a moment, refuse to come to the rescue of his little grandchild, even though he hated her. - The Moving Picture World, December 30, 1911
