Storyline

"It's in the surprise" that great plays are made and battles won, and our tenderfoot friend, appreciating this, pulls a victory that is amazing. The western camp folks had suffered the loss of a number of horses at the hands of a gang of horse thieves led by Black Pete, who up to date eluded the United States Marshal and his deputies. Their deeds becoming more brazen, a notice is posted offering a reward of $500 for the apprehension of Pete, and while this reward is rather tempting, former efforts have proven so fruitless that the boys of the camp are slow to more. The marshal has a pretty daughter, on whom every boy has set his heart. They vie good naturedly with each other in engaging her attentions, but she treats them all with the same consideration, liking them all, but no one in particular. It remains for one of them to do something extraordinary. Ah! An idea, "Say, boys, I like you all immensely, but I will give my hand for keeps to the captor of Pete." With a cheer the boys ...

One almost wants to hurrah
28 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Something in the victory of a tenderfoot or a greenhorn, in anything, makes one thrill with a sort of exultation that is unexplainable, but none the less real. And when the young, and apparently innocent, minister falls into the horse thieves' camp and succeeds in taking the entire gang into camp one must needs join in the thrill of pleasure over his success. Like all Biograph pictures, the story is remarkably well told and there isn't a dull moment from the beginning to the end. The acting of the hero, the innocent minister, is as well adapted to the peculiar part as it possibly can be, and at the climax, when he receives his $500 and the hand of the girl, one almost wants to hurrah with the rest of the cowboys. - The Moving Picture World, May 7, 1910
