Storyline

Alongside of a beautiful mountain stream in the foothills of Colorado there camped a Sioux Indian, who besides being a magnificent type of the aboriginal American, is a most noble creature, as kind-hearted as a woman and as brave as a lion. He eked his existence by fishing, hunting and mining, having a small claim which he clandestinely worked, hiding his gains in the trunk of an old tree. It is needless to say that he was beloved by those few who knew him, among whom was a little boy, who was his almost constant companion. One day he took the little fellow to his deposit vault, the tree trunk, and showed him the yellow nuggets he had dug from the earth, presenting him with a couple of them. In the camp there were a couple of low-down human coyotes, who would rather steal than work. They had long been anxious to find the hiding place of the Indian's wealth, so capture the boy, and by beating and torture compel him to disclose its whereabouts. In the meantime there has come to the ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

D.W. Griffith and Narrative
19 November 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The author of flashback and screen narrative can be ascribed to the 33 year old Griffith in this film. Not only has he created a vocabulary for backstory through editing, he has also given narrative a three-tiered structure taking it a stage further from theatre and literature into cinema. That's the significance of this film.
