Synopsis by Hal Erickson
John Ince, the brother of pioneering Hollywood mogul Thomas Ince, was producer, director and star of The Hour of Reckoning. The plot concerns an elderly inventor, whose precious blueprints are appropriated illegally by the crooked owner of a safe-manufacturing company. The villain's honest business manager finds out about his boss' skullduggery but is unable to do anything about it. Things come to a perilous pass when the owner's son, who is engaged to the manager's daughter, is locked in the safe, for which only the manager has the combination. For the sake of his daughter, the manager releases the boy, whereupon the dishonest owner suddenly has a change of heart and pays the inventor a generous sum for those blueprints.
