Storyline

Allan Egan, the young sheriff of Jassimine County, loves the pretty Wilma Allerton, the daughter of the wealthy Texas ranchman.

The one novelty is the introduction of a Kodak
19 May 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Western picture full of action and developing some strongly human traits of character. The one novelty is the introduction of a Kodak in the hands of a child, the negative from which clearly establishes the guilt of a certain gambler in a hold-up. When the sheriff secures the evidence he allows the man to go free, and even contributes money to put him on his feet because of a girl in the case. It is a type of sacrifice which is unquestionably open to serious objections. Yet it seems so human, and so like a man whose blood runs red. that the fault can be condoned, even though it appears to be a dangerous precedent. Altogether the him has a reasonably strong appeal on the human side, and should be popular with those whose humanity has not sunk to a low ebb. - The Moving Picture World, May 21, 1910
