Action runs riot throughout the reel
There are a number of live thrills in "The Trap," the latest episode of the "Grant, Police Reporter," series. The Kalem picture in which George Larkin has the title role tells how the newspaper chap prevented a gang of crooks from disgracing a police officer, the father of the girl he loves. Grant performs some interesting stunts in a dumbwaiter shaft, while on the track of the gang, and winds up by taking a flying leap from a third-story window to a distant telegraph pole. Ollie Kirkby, in the person of the police officer's daughter, gets into a boy's suit of clothes and has a lively set-to with one of the crooks. Action runs riot throughout the reel, and other members of the cast that do good work are Robert Ellis, Harry Gordon, Bert Tracey and M. Cohen. Robert Ellis directed the picture. - The Moving Picture World, February 17, 1917
