Storyline

Two men are seen preparing for a raid. Arriving at the large, ornamental iron gates leading into the grounds, the elder tries, but without success, to unlock the fastening. There is nothing else left but for one of them to climb over, and this falls to the lot of the younger man. The bag is passed over to him and be creeps up to a window. He climbs in, opens a drawer, and finds a number of valuables which he places in his bag. Looking about, he finds that he is in the bedroom of the daughter of the house. He looks at her and is so struck with her beauty that he cannot find it in his heart to rob her. He turns back to his bag, and taking the trinkets out, replaces them. At the gates, his pal eagerly asks the extent of the spoil. He replies that he has none. The next day the young fellow waits at the gate of her house.

Depends for its interest chiefly on the novelty of its idea
5 September 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A melodrama with a very novel idea. A burglar enters a house to steal, but, because of the beauty of the owner of the gems, he leaves without taking anything, much to the disgust of his pal. In the next two or three weeks he manages to get acquainted with the girl whom he saw asleep and later becomes her accepted suitor. He is still dishonest and at the races steals a hand bag from a lady by cutting it from its strap. A motion picture camera was pointed toward him. Later, he takes the girl into a picture show and the very scene is projected. The girl sees him commit the crime. He proves to the girl that he has turned over a new leaf and she forgives him. It is a well designed picture, but depends for its interest chiefly on the novelty of its idea. The thread of the story seems hardly reasonable enough to be very affecting. - The Moving Picture World, February 17, 1912
