~Plot Synopsis~
Hardly an important film, Finger Prints pleased the crowd with its heady combination of slapstick
comedy and old-dark-house melodrama. A professional crook is collared by the law, but not before
squirreling away a fortune in hidden money in a crumbling country mansion. The crook's sister is
kidnapped by his accomplices, who take the girl to the mansion, hoping to force her to reveal the
whereabouts of the loot. What they don't know is that the house has been fitted with all sorts of
modern, push-button devices, which thoroughly flummox the bad guys while delighting their
unterrified captive. The day is saved by the timely intervention of comic-relief servant Louise
Fazenda (who certainly deserves the top billing bestowed upon her).
