Cast & Crew
C. M. Franklin
When John Van Houck and his daughter Gretchen come to the United States from Holland, he resumes his profession as an engraver, while she falls in love with Pietro, an Italian immigrant living in their tenement. Recognizing John's skills, Rodgers, a criminal, tricks him into engraving a plate from which counterfeit money, indistinguishable from the real thing, can be made, and then convinces Gretchen to pass the phony bills. When Gretchen and John realize how they have been used, they make plans to expose Rodgers, but when he finds out, he drags them to his hideout and locks them in. The Garrity children, however, who live alongside Gretchen, witness the abduction and so alert Pietro. With the help of the police, he captures Rodgers and then frees his sweetheart and her father, after which he and Gretchen get married.
