Plot Burglary is quite an art nowadays, and to be a successful housebreaker one has to have a fertile imagination and be able to devise new tricks, otherwise, with patent locks, burglar alarms and electric currents the profession would soon be a glory of the past. The two young criminals represented in this film are well aware of the necessity of ingenuity and soon prove that they are up to their task. They buy an old sarcophagus in an antique shop. One of the partners in crime dresses up as a mummy and lies down in the old coffin while his pal writes to a wealthy old professor that he will be happy to present him with a well preserved Egyptian mummy for his museum. Shortly after the precious gift is taken away by the grateful scholar, and thus Mr. Burglar gains admission to the enemy's camp in an honorable way. The elated old man opens his precious box to admire its contents, but his pleasure is short-lived, for jumping out of his prison like a Jack-in-the-box our burglar grabs the old fellow, pushes him into the Egyptian hiding place and, after having locked it securely, starts ransacking the whole house. He soon has his booty collected and loses no time in making his escape. Shortly afterwards the servants find their master prostrate in the casket. The clever trick is discovered, but too late, for the valuables of the household have disappeared, as well as the thieves.... search for Burglar's New Trick on IMDb
