Storyline

Tony Perez, a Mexican cowpuncher, is driven from the ranch where he is employed for some misdemeanor or other, and after vainly endeavoring to find work, tries the gate of Dan Farman's ranch, "The Mosquito," and applies for a job. His hard luck story rings true and old Dan, who is of a charitable turn, puts the Mexican to work. Alice Farman, the daughter and "flower of the ranch," is in love with Nat Michaels, the ranch foreman. Perez, who has seen Alice from time to time, becomes deeply infatuated with the girl, and one day when he encounters her alone, he voices his passionate love. The girl shakes her head and scorns him. Perez then insults the girl and attempts to kiss her. A darkey servant, who has been near, sees this, and running to the bunkhouse, summons a number of cowboys. Alice, raging with indignation, tells them that the Mexican had insulted her.

It is not pleasant to see even pictured insults
14 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Western love story, with thrills enough to hold the interest of the audience and keep them wondering what is coming next. It is illustrative of a trait in the character of a Mexican which may or may not be true, but which, nevertheless, adds interest to the picture. One objection to the film is the carrying off of a girl. It is not pleasant to see even pictured insults, and it would be quite as well for the motion picture industry, and the influence of the motion picture, if such scenes were relegated to the background along with the murders and suicides which rioted across the screens some months ago. They add no touch that is beneficial and they are distinctly objectionable to a great many people. Otherwise this film has much to commend it, in dramatic quality, acting and photography. The Essanay players have grasped the true Western spirit and have satisfactorily interpreted certain phases of plains life. - The Moving Picture World, March 12, 1910
