The profits accrued by Essanay's Charlie Chaplin and Broncho Billy Anderson films enabled them on occasion to turn out a limited-appeal feature like 1916's The Breaker. Bryant Washburn plays a door-to-door salesman who comes into possession of a satchel of counterfeit money. Girl detective Nell Craig trails Washburn, planning to slip the cuffs on him at a moment's notice. Instead, she falls in love with him. Beyond the gender-switching in the leading roles, The Breaker is hardly out-of-ordinary material, but Essanay was able to attain good bookings all the same.
