“This one-reel drama is crammed full of action,” declared a critic for the Moving Picture World in February of 1914. and so it is, with the events moving so quickly that it is almost hard to keep up with the story. The film was made both at Betzwood and in Philadelphia as the story required scenes shot in “big city” streets.
The successful conviction of a group of blackmailers makes the District Attorney (Edgar Jones) a marked man. He is kidnapped in his own automobile and taken to a hide-out in the country where he is bound and gagged and left with a bomb set to explode by his head. Then someone shoots at him… What will his wife (Louise Huff) and the police find when they finally get there?
The film contains a close up, a technique still relatively rare in Lubin films of this date. However, the close view of the bomb makes it clear that the timer–a large alarm clock–and the dynamite are not in any way connected and the “bomb” has no chance of detonation. Edgar Jones was the director of this film and his directorial efforts occasionally lacked attention to details like this.
