Crime-Busting Operator

In this one reel movie about those new hi-tech gadgets called 'telephones,' we meet a gal that connects the well-connected gentlemen and ladies on Long Island, New York. We meet her boyfriend the policeman walking the neighborhood beat, and we meet her father, who wants her to marry the grocer instead of the policeman so that the family can inherit his grocery business. We also meet The Lady . . . a wealthy gal who gets a note from her jeweler telling her that her precious jewels have been re-set and are ready for her to pick up . . . just give them a call on the telephone and let them know when she will be there to pick them up. Thanks to her friendly telephone girl she calls and arranges to pick up her jewelry. Once in the store she attracts the attention of a jewel thief watching from the street, who just happens to be future legendary actor Harry Carey. When the lady leaves with her jewelry the thief steals a bicycle that a delivery boy parked nearby and follows her car to her Long Island home. Now . . . this lady knows the benefits of gratitude, and she sends a small necklace to the telephone girl to thank her for her services and for connecting her calls. The telephone girl is so thankful for this gift that she calls the lady on the telephone to thank her . . . and during the conversation the jewel thief breaks into the lady's home and tries to discover the location of the lady's jewels. Our little telephone girl hears the struggle and the jewel thief and immediately calls the police station, only to discover that Desk Sergeant Lionel Barrymore cuts her off before she can tell him about the robbery because of a scuffle in the station, and he hangs up on the telephone girl. This only makes the telephone girl more resolute to help the generous lady and she leaves her switchboard and finds a mounted policeman outside and rides with him to the Long Island home to save the lady from the jewel thief. After a rousing fight with jewel thief Harry Carey, the telephone girl and the policeman subdue the thief and save the Lady and her jewels. With even more gratitude in her heart the Lady gives the telephone girl yet another gift of appreciation . . . she has learned that Gratitude is certainly a profitable emotion . . . Pop a little bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
