"Broncho Billy" varies his formula a bit, using some of his company from his "Snakeville" comedy unit in a bit of romantic comedy with a touch of pathos as Broncho Billy acts as cupid for a young woman and her new boyfriend, whom the old one shoots. There's an air of pathos in this one -- Billy, over hundreds of short westerns varied his formulas enough to keep his audience entertained.
Unfortunately this resulted in a lack of character continuity, so to the modern viewer -- whom, one hopes, is educated in these silents -- each piece is pretty much on its own. This one is all right, but not much more. Still, if you wish to see it for yourself, it's available for viewing on the George Eastman House website.
