It seems like a quickly thrown-together picture
8 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A romance of the west with some charming love scenes offset by deeds of treachery, robbery and murder. The girl, daughter of a not very wise old sheriff, is loved by a cow puncher of good character. Her father wants her to marry a man whom he trusts, but whom she despises. This character shows the gold lust. He then conspires with another evil character to rob a bank. He so arranges things that he is with the sheriff while the robbery is being done. He and the sheriff chase this robber and he kills him. They are in a lonely place and, after the other is dead, he kills the sheriff for the sake of the gold. He then attempts to abduct the girl. The hero, meanwhile, in a very conventional way, has fastened to him the suspicion that it was he who killed the sheriff. The villain makes a false step, however, and the boys understand the situation. It seems like a quickly thrown-together picture. It has thrills, hard riding, and some good backgrounds. - The Moving Picture World, December 30, 1911
