Storyline

In the little western town of Lariat, when our story opens, there is much excitement over the latest depredations of the robber, who, because of his particular ingenuity in hiding his real identity, is styled the "Bearded Bandit." The name was evidently supplied from the fact that he wears a disguise in the form of a heavy black beard. The night before the bandit is reported to have held up a bunch of punchers and got away with a good quantity of dust. Something must be done to stop him, and therefore a posse is organized to accompany the sheriff on a little man-hunting expedition with a prize of $5,000 to the citizen who either bags or "plugs" the dare-devil robber. Curt Wilson, the young sheriff, is in love with Nan Connors, the daughter of a neighboring ranchman, and it is partly to obtain the advice of his prospective father-in-law as well as to see Nan that he rides out to Connors' ranch before setting out on his perilous expedition.

so interesting and different from the run of Western dramas
15 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A stirring Western drama presenting as its principal character a man who is at once ranchman and bandit. When a price is placed on his head, as ranchman he smilingly consents to the marriage of his daughter and the sheriff as soon as the officer shall have captured the bandit and receives the reward. Then he goes out and holds up a stagecoach. Later, shot in a saloon, he turns over the evidence that he is the bearded bandit to his daughter so she may claim the reward, but through loyalty to her father's memory she destroys the evidence and never tells. ]t is a simple story, yet so strong is it in the telling that one enters into its very spirit and forgets for the time that it is only a picture. The only certain thing about the ending is that the bandit was never captured. It is a good story and well told, and is an excellent study of character. It is so interesting and different from the run of Western dramas that its subject can be overlooked and the picture enjoyed as a pleasing dramatic production. - The Moving Picture World, October 22, 1910
