In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland

The next day, Jim offers Ed a career-advancing assignment to transport a shipment of money. Mac and Sandy, who are wary of Ed's relationship with Daisy, then suggest to Jim that they secretly stay in the background to help Ed out if anything goes wrong. When Ed drunkenly tells Daisy about the job, she tells Cholo, who decides to steal the money, and because Daisy pretends that she wants to go away with him, Ed agrees to the plan. Sandy and Mac, who see the robbery but don't know that Ed is in on it, follow the robbers, the Gorman brothers. During the chase, a child is killed by the thieves and Mac dies of a bullet wound. When the Gormans are brought in for questioning, one of the brothers confesses to a shocked Jim that Ed was in on it because he thinks that his brother is being beaten by policemen in another room. All three are then tried for robbery and murder, but Michaels gets them off by frightening witnesses and charging that the Gormans confessed only to stop being beaten. When the men are aquitted, the judge admonishes the obviously intimidated jury for their cowardliness. That night, while Jim despairs, Ed goes to him to beg forgiveness and offers to go to the newspapers with the truth. Jim tells Ed to go to Belmonte's club and confront him at exactly 3:30
