Trapped by Pinkertons (1906)
- Summaries (1)
Two criminals have secured an exact photograph of the president of a large bank; the robbers then meet at their rendezvous, and one of the two is "made up" in exact imitation of the president, in which they are materially assisted by the photograph they have secured. They are next seen at the bank and, being ushered into the president's private office, they engage him in conversation until the president suddenly finds himself looking into the muzzle of a six shooter, while the other brings forth his disguise and puts it on. By the threat of immediate death they compel the president to sign a check payable to himself for a very large amount. This being done, the robber who has made himself up in exact imitation of the president has the audacity to go into the outer office and cash the check at the cashier's office, the companion meanwhile holding the unfortunate president in check. The daring robber then returns to the president's office, having secured payment of the check from the cashier, and the two men, after tying the president's hands securely, stun him with a blow from the butt end of a revolver, which renders him unconscious and together make their escape. After a time the president regains consciousness and manages to crawl to his bell and tap it with his chin. The matter is placed in the hands of the Pinkerton Agency, who recognize the criminal from the description. They lay a trap for them by a fake newspaper item. The item reaches the attention of the robbers, who, all unsuspecting and after a little plotting, get their guns and masks and go off to be caught like rats in a trap. The final scene shows the capture of the robbers.
