Parker and Baldwin both love Grace Summerfield. Grace prefers Baldwin and dismisses Parker after he has insulted her. Parker vows vengeance.

They know nothing of masonry, however, and set forth to procure the services of a bricklayer, who reluctantly does the task, but tells a policeman when he gets away. Meantime, Baldwin, alarmed at Grace's protracted absence, goes to the police station to notify the police. His story fits in with that of the bricklayer, and together they start out to find a clue.

Too improbable and too hastily constructed
16 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A modern version of the plot made familiar by Poe and other writers, in which a human being is walled up in brickwork. This picture story is too improbable and too hastily constructed to get this situation strongly before the observer, but at the same time it serves to hold the attention and is well photographed. The hero arrives in time to thwart the Italian banker and get the girl out of the wall alive. - The Moving Picture World, November 1, 1913
