Burglars Bold

Available on DVD:

From approximately 2 minutes (20%) of the film available for review...

Three young ladies sit outside on a balcony, seated around a table discussing their wealth and boasting of their personal jewels when a fourth woman enters with a newspaper which shows a notorious burglar called 'The Eel' (a.k.a. the 'Master Thief') on the loose. We cut to a bride and groom sitting inside the house reading a book when the women run in to show them the newspaper. The bride (Ethel Broadhurst) asks her groom Lester (Eddie Boland) if they should be scared?

That's it!

Copyrighted March 9, 1921.
The groom is reading "The Bloody Coat - Or Who Stole The McCluck Diamonds" by Lester Charlesworth when we first see him.
