Storyline

A prominent woman has a very valuable diamond for which she accepts an offer from a jeweler. Two scoundrels plot to rob her of the diamond before she can part with it. They waylay her and carry her off to a house where they demand from her the diamond. With a smile she shows them the receipt for a registered package as she had deemed it safer to send it by this means. Later she takes them off their guard and escapes. An exciting automobile chase now takes place, ending with the car in which the would-be diamond robbers are seated being hurled over the cliff to destruction.

Several intense and exciting scenes
5 January 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-part picture play wherein a woman, who is the owner of a valuable diamond, foils two scoundrels who are determined to rob her. The working out of the plot is very interesting. It contains several intense and exciting scenes and also a good punch, wherein an exciting automobile race occurs, ending with the car occupied by the robbers being hurled over a cliff. The photography is well done and several beautiful scenes are shown. - The Moving Picture World, August 29, 1914
