The scene takes place on a Western ranch in Wyoming. Jim Flanders, a wealthy ranchman, has a beautiful daughter, Alice, who is loved by Tom Ripley, the foreman of the ranch. The match is objected to by Flanders, who desires his daughter to wed a more cultured and refined man. Ripley is so persistent, however, that Flanders discharges him from his services and orders him to leave the ranch. Robert Gray, an Easterner, and the type of a man, presumably, that Flanders prefers for a son-in-law, is sojourning at the ranch and appears to be desperately in love with Alice. Alice, however, sees through the veneer and Eastern polish of his makeup, and will have nothing to do with him. A climax comes one day shortly after when Ripley again visits the girl and is ordered away by Flanders. A bitter quarrel ensues in which Ripley draws his gun, but he is saved from shooting the ranchman by the timely interference of the other cowboys.

What remorse will do
24 January 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Someone has said that even though a murderer or other criminal is never punished by the law he is punished by his own conscience in the fate which pursues him to his death, regardless of what the world may think of him. This excellent picture is based upon a supposition of that character. It is a Western drama, filled with the rush and whirl of the life of the plains. With it is woven a love story upon which is based the drama. An innocent man is accused of a murder and lynched to get him out of the way and obtain a girl's consent to marriage. But even though the murderer succeeds in eluding justice and in having the punishment for a crime fastened upon an innocent man, he cannot free his own conscience from the influence of the crime, and eventually, with his partner, hurls himself to death over a precipice. This tragedy has nothing mawkish about it. There is no foolish shedding of tears or any sentimental attempt to free one criminal or to influence those most interested. It is a picture of what remorse will do for a man who has committed, or who has been instrumental in having committed, an awful crime. He is fitly punished, but by the hand of fate, which is far more relentless than the hand of man in this instance. The dramatic situations arc numerous and are well interpreted, while the photography is clear. The details are worked out with fidelity and there is a convincing character to the whole picture which carries strong weight with the audience. - The Moving Picture World, December 11, 1909
