With a title like The Redeemed Criminal, it was surprising indeed that this Essanay drama could engender any suspense concerning its outcome. Arrested after robbing a bank, a criminal refuses to rat on his partner, and is sentenced to 20 years as a consequence. During those two decades, the imprisoned man's pal reforms, becoming a man of the cloth. The story picks up momentum as the reformed criminal's son prepares to marry a society girl. Who should show up at the wedding reception but the redeemed man's ex-partner, who unregenerately steals a necklace. Fortunately, the crook-turned-preacher is able to convince his former cohort to turn honest, leading to a happy (if hardly believable) conclusion.
