His Last Burglary was also director D. W. Griffith's last location jaunt to Coytesville, New Jersey. Unhinged by grief after the death of his baby, a young husband Henry B. Walthall becomes a burglar. When his wife finds out, the husband promises to end his life of crime. He does, however, commit one last burglary, but his intentions are honorable; his "swag" consists of a cherubic infant who has been unfairly snatched from the arms of its poverty-stricken mother. Such was the dramatic impact of this Biograph one-reeler that the critic for the trade magazine Variety claimed that he could see as well as hear the baby's gurgles.
