Storyline

Jim Reed, an outlaw, holds up a stagecoach, but is seen by a horseman, who hastily rides to the sheriff's office and shortly after, the sheriff and posse are in pursuit. Finding the trail of the desperado they follow him through a dense woods on the mountainside before he is aware that he is being pursued. He easily eludes them and coming across a miner's hut, enters and holds up the miner's wife and daughter, while he forces them to prepare him a meal. The sheriff and the posse, in the meantime, have found his trail and tracked him to the hut, but the outlaw, threatening to kill the mother, forces the daughter to tell the sheriff and posse that the man has not appeared at their place.

More commendable for its art than for its ethical value
23 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It looked like the same old hold-up scene, but it is soon apparent that the situation is being handled freshly. The outlaw's actions in the cabin of the woman and her daughter, where, at the point of a pistol, he forces them to give him food and also to send the sheriff's posse on the wrong track, is more commendable for its art than for its ethical value. The next day the outlaw, now wounded, stumbles, fainting, into the cabin of a minister. The minister's daughter bathes his face, and when he is recovering reads to him from the Bible. That he falls in love with her and repents is shown with a good measure of effect. He serves his time. It is a very interesting picture, unusually so for its kind. - The Moving Picture World, October 14, 1911
