Storyline

A great financier, a power in Wall Street, fell in love with a society girl. Feeling sure that she would accept him, he proposed, but she had the bad taste to prefer a younger and poorer man, and the financier, filled with rage and chagrin, determined to be revenged. The girl's father was a broker in Wall Street, and it was at him that the financier struck. In the daily battles on the stock exchange the shares in which the broker was interested steadily sunk in value. The broker, on the verge of ruin, learned who his enemy was, and asked him to spare him. The financier laughed at him and said that he meant to ruin him. And he certainly would have kept his word if the successful suitor had not intervened. The young man told his future father-in-law not to worry, but on the following morning to lead a determined onslaught upon the financier's holdings, for the latter, he assured the worried broker, would not be on hand to lead his forces. By a clever ruse, the financier was decoyed away... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Not an exciting plot, but a rather fascinating one
21 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A good story of high finance, with its chief feature showing the manner in which a noted financier was spirited away in a steel-enclosed cab until the market closed for the day. The love story is well handled and the plot follows consistently from beginning to end. Not an exciting plot, but a rather fascinating one. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
