Storyline

Buck Stevens, an outlaw, escapes from the county jail, but is speedily captured and locked up again. In more ways than one Buck is shown kindness by the sheriff, who urges him to serve his time. A few years later, when Buck is released, he reads that there is a reward for the capture of one Dare Devil Kelly, hiding in Snake Canon. The sheriff is incapacitated through injury to his ankle and after vainly calling for volunteers to go after the bad man, the sheriff gives Buck the chance. Buck, after a hot fight with the outlaw and his wife, captures Kelly, though he has suffered some at the hands of Mrs. Kelly, a real Amazon. Later, Buck, who is in sympathy with Kelly's wife, mails her the reward money he has received, with the hope that it will tide her over until her husband is released.

Mr. Anderson's Buck is very interesting
13 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most interesting "Western" pictures that the Essanay people have produced in some time. Buck, the outlaw, who had served his time, undertook to bring Kelly in. Kelly was also an outlaw and was "wanted." He and Mrs. Kelly lived in a tent up on the hills. He got Kelly all right, but Mrs. Kelly very nearly got him. He forced her at length to obey him, at the point of his revolver, which he carefully kept pointed at Kelly's heart. In this way he forced Mrs. Kelly to bring out all the firearms and then to hammer them with a hatchet so that she couldn't fire them when his back was turned. He sent her the reward he won. It was enough to keep her till her husband got out. Mr. Anderson's Buck is very interesting. Miss Fields plays Mrs. Kelly. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
