Storyline

Tom, jailed for another's crime, is discharged because of his record. He goes home. An appeal to a doctor results in failure, and, discouraged, he plans to rob his employer's home to get money for medicine for his sick daughter. His employer and wife go out, leaving the maid with Helen, his little daughter. The maid has a date with her beau, and leaves the baby asleep. Tom enters with intent to rob, but finds Helen, sick, and stays to nurse her. Helen's parents return unexpectedly, and find Tom nursing Helen. Over the bedside of their sick daughter, they realize a man was born, and they paid the price. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Old and improbable situations
3 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

This picture is based on several old and improbable situations, one of them being where the burglar replaces a roll of bills to attend the sick baby. Yet with the aid of good photography and capable acting this gets hold of the interest and proves acceptable. - The Moving Picture World, January 24, 1914
