Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This 989-foot D.W. Griffith production was advertised by its home studio of Biograph as a "contemporary melodrama." Most of the story takes place at night, as three bold burglars attempt to rob the home of a wealthy banker. The crooks are foiled by the resourcefulness of the banker's courageous daughters, who not only prevent the theft but also manage to hold the villains at bay until the cops arrive. The trade magazine Variety noted that the story was "far-fetched," a common failing of the Biographs of this period. But with D.W. Griffith at the helm, The Banker's Daughters could not be accused of being dull.
