Written by someone who knew a thing or two about underworld life
This interesting picture was plainly written by someone who knew a thing or two about underworld life and knew how to write a picture. The acting and direction do much to make it seem realistic, though the situation is not hard to believe. The detective, who knows that his younger brother is not just what he should be, catches him in a serious theft and is about to deliver him up; but their mother pleads for the boy. William Shay plays the detective, Herbert Brennon, the boy, and Lillian Langdon, their mother. That last scene was hardly worthwhile; the older brother didn't need to break the furniture to bolster his lie. If he had said, "My prisoner has escaped," that would have been enough. The photograph is good. - The Moving Picture World, April 19, 1913
