Synopsis:
Nellie Nelson, reared among the criminals and crime waves of New York, specializes
in picking pockets. Working an upstate town, Nellie meets a local boy, loves him on
sight and determines to make a thief and a husband of him. She would have
succeeded, too, if it had not been for old Chris Hawkins, the village carpenter,
whose head was full of more saws than his tool box and who, like his artisan idol of
old, worked in mysterious ways his wonders to perform. Chris not only saved the
boy, but, with the help of a timely stroke of lightning as a signal, scared Nellie into a
state of salvation as well.
From The Best Plays of 1924-1925 by Burns Mantle.
