Storyline

Mamie, a girl of the underworld, whose only education has been that of crime, becomes a daring house-breaker and succeeds in looting many of the apartment houses and private residences in the suburbs. Completely nonplussed, the police are obliged to call in special detective service, and a noted sleuth is assigned to the ease. Detective White frequents the haunts of the girl, finally meeting and ingratiating himself in the role of a lover. Disguised as one of the habitués of the dive, he tries for some time to secure damaging evidence, but is unsuccessful. In his attentions to Mamie he arouses the Jealousy of big "Bill," a notorious crook, whose suspicions are aroused as to the detective's true calling. Through persistent shadowing, he finds his suspicions correct and just as the detective had planned to make a clean haul, denounces him before the gang and in the hearing of the girl. Although thoroughly disillusioned, the girl cannot forget the one good influence that entered her life... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Remarkable for the atmosphere of underworld life in New York City
26 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

One of the first things that will be noticed in this picture is the care and thought shown in its handling. It deals with criminals and detectives and the maker of the scenario knew what he wanted and knew the materials he needed to work with. The object of the story doesn't rise to the plane of Sheldon's "Salvation Nell," but its realism suggests that play's best scene. The producer has done his part well and the result is remarkable for the atmosphere of underworld life in New York City. That picture of a dive could hardly have been made better. It is an offering out of the ordinary run and very commendable. Miss Florence Barker plays the lead. - The Moving Picture World, November 2, 1912
