Storyline

She was rich and a good business woman, but she didn't look it. Her home in the country was comfortably furnished, and she lived there for choice, although property in the city was in her name. One building she owned was a city mansion, and the necessity of collecting the rent induced her to take a trip to the metropolis. Crossing a crowded thoroughfare, she became confused, but was rescued by a polite young man, who, finding her rather upset by her experience, volunteered to escort her to her lawyer's office. There he saw a large sum of money paid over to her, and at once grew to like her the more. The fact was that the young man was a crook, and saw a chance to make some easy money. The woman, who had taken a fancy to him, decided to be his "fairy Godmother," intending to test him out, and if he proved worthy to put him in the way of making his fortune. She was feeling most benevolent that day, and could see a popular storybook ending to what promised to be a very ordinary adventure... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It is a good picture with an instructive meaning
25 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very excellent view of the great waiting-room of the Pennsylvania Station in New York, shows the easy mark, a rich widow, arriving in the city on a pleasure trip. A sharper, a "kind" young man, volunteers to show her the sights. He steers her into a good investment, a furnished house for $1,500. Only last month, someone from Aroostook County, Maine, bought Madison Square Garden for $2,000. This old lady didn't lose her money, they tried to sell her her own house. She had them nabbed. It is a good picture with an instructive meaning, and the old lady will waken sympathies also. The photographs, including busy street scenes, are good. It is an ordinary feature and a good, desirable filler. - The Moving Picture World, April 20, 1912
