One of the earlier of the Betzwood westerns, the film features Edgar Jones with the first of his two co-stars, Clara Williams. Jones is the employee of a bank and the banker’s daughter playfully locks him in the vault for fun, but then can’t reopen it. She rides off to get help. Meanwhile, thieves try to rob the vault and find Jones the verge of suffocation. However, when he shoots at them, they lock him in again and he resumes suffocating. Clara finally arrives with her father, who knows the combination, and Jones is rescued just in the nick of time. Of course all is forgiven and he marries Clara anyway.
Lubin Manufacturing Company, 1912. Starring Edgar Jones and Clara Williams.
