An element of novelty
13 July 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Lubin story which has an element of novelty. A husband starts out in the morning and decides to purchase his wife a dresser with a handsome mirror as a surprise. It is sent home and she has it put in her room. Meanwhile a burglar has entered the house and hides behind the lace curtains as the dresser and mirror is brought into the room. While smoothing her hair before the mirror she sees the burglar leave his place behind the curtain and secrete himself under the bed. She finishes smoothing her hair, and then goes to the telephone and calls the police. The burglar leaves his hiding place as soon as she goes down stairs and begins picking up valuables. The police arrive in time to see him disappear through the window and over the roof. But they finally catch him. It is a pretty story and the element of novelty is so well worked out that it causes the audience to watch with intense interest every move of all the actors. - The Moving Picture World, March 20, 1909
