The novelty of Christmas in the West
13 October 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Western story, based upon the jealousy of a cowboy for the Eastern man who successfully won the love of the ranch man's daughter. Bent upon killing him, the cowboy impersonates Santa Claus, but the spirit of Christmas takes possession of him and by the time the presents are distributed he joins the bands of the lovers and wishes them well. It is a transfer of Christmas to the plains and a reproduction of the novel taken to make it merry. Of course, much of the time-honored paraphernalia is necessary, but it is a new way to work it out. The film is scarcely dramatic, but it tells a good story in a plain, easily understood way. and presents the novelty of Christmas in the West. These features add to its interest and make it attractive. - The Moving Picture World, January 7, 1911
