Storyline

The advance man for Brooklyn Red's gang of burglars, disguised as a tramp, comes to Greenfield and sizes up the town, preparatory to robbing the bank. He wires his confederates to meet him at a camp outside the village. There they make the explosive for blowing up the safe. After a series of exciting incidents they bind and gag the young woman in the telephone office and loot the bank. The girl at the switchboard manages to free herself and warn the marshal, but though pursued by an armed posse, the robbers make their getaway. Later, the Bankers' Protective Association does some clever detective work, locating the gang and arresting all the members, each of whom is sentenced to thirty years at hard labor.

One of the best offerings within a month
30 December 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-part offering was written by C.D. Browne, of the Minnesota Bankers' Protective Association, and shows what a bank burglar can reasonably expect as a result of his crime. It seems about as entertaining as any picture could well be; is one of the best offerings within a month. Full of snap, go and dramatic suspense, it holds the spectator to the very end; there is not a bit of padding nor a spot in it that is not absorbingly interesting. It shows how the yeggs plan and carry out their scheme to rob the bank's safe and get away with the coin. Then it switches to the detectives' side of the matter and shows how their co-ordinated information about the under-world and its doings makes it an easy thing to gather in the criminals. Its author had a dandy story to tell and its producer had the skill to make that story tell powerfully on the screen. Acting, staging, photography, everything about the picture is of the best. It is an offering to make business for the exhibitor. - The Moving Picture World, August 22, 1914
