Defects are scarcely noticed, if indeed, any exist
10 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The wild rush of a stampede, a woman trampled to death and a child saved thereby, together with the love story which develops later, combines to make this a picture which keeps the audience up to a tense interest. It depicts this type of life very graphically. The later kidnapping of the child, grown now to womanhood, and the plainly intimated improper advances on the part of the outlaw, who is really her father, and the finding of the locket which reveals the relationship to him, give the actors an excellent chance to show dramatic imagination. The death of the outlaw is the finale in this exciting picture. The film carries the audience along with such a dash and swing that defects are scarcely noticed, if indeed, any exist. - The Moving Picture World, April 29, 1911
