Storyline

Nell Olcott, a pretty western girl, is the proprietress of a bar and gambling hall in a little western village. Needless to say she has many admirers among the big uncouth cowpunchers and miners, who respect her wishes that none of them become drunk at her bar or gamble away all their money at her tables.

Not altogether pleasant, but fascinating
31 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

A highly sensational film, depicting wild Western scenes with a degree of realism that is not altogether pleasant, but fascinating. A girl is kidnapped, and trussed up to a tree in front of her lover's cabin, while the kidnapper goes in and finds the lover with the intention of murdering him. In this he is thwarted and is afterward shot dead by the girl's lover. This is all sensational enough, but is saved from the usual disagreeable coarseness by the excellent acting. Usually such films are more or less disagreeable, but in this instance the acting is its saving grace and the audience plainly expresses its approval. - The Moving Picture World, April 8, 1911
