Two young men of a western town, Will Phelps and George Arden, are in love with the same girl, the belle of the village. Having been pals from boyhood they decide to let the girl choose between them and to abide by her decision without argument or malice. Jessie chooses Phelps, and Arden, although deeply hurt by her decision, presses the hands of both and wishes them happiness. Several years elapse during which time Jessie and Will are married and the latter has become sheriff of the county. It is then that Arden returns and the two men are apparently happy in being together again. Will invites George to luncheon with him and Jessie and George accept. During the meal a deputy rushes in and informs the young sheriff that a prisoner has escaped.

Will be applauded by a considerable proportion of those who see it
7 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A thrilling Western drama. it depicts in a forcible manner the perfidy of a man who lost his sweetheart and his later attempts to compromise her and induce her to go away with him. Perhaps one of the most satisfactory scenes in a long time is the pommeling he gets when her husband returns and sees what the wretch is doing. It is rough work, but it is salutary and will be applauded by a considerable proportion of those who see it. The characters all perform their parts acceptably and there is a swing and dash to the story which makes it attractive, despite its suggestiveness and rough vigor. Perhaps it may be said that the men shown have red blood and that always appeals to an audience. - The Moving Picture World, April 22, 1911
