Storyline

The son of the foreman of the ranch is a young man of many good qualities, but a bit wayward; drinking and gambling are passions irrepressible with him. The ranch owner's daughter has quite a liking for the boy and does her best to make him reform. This he promises to do, and is given hope of winning more than her friendship. The son has gained the enmity of an ugly-tempered Mexican who works on the ranch and who has sworn to get even. His chance comes when the son is entrusted with a large sum of money and sent to town, the Mexican accompanying him.

All this seems to work out well, until fate turns the tables on ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Biograph takes a leaf from some of its lesser contemporaries
7 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Good Biograph Western, or still better, Californian. There is a wayward son of a ranch foreman; perhaps weak would be a better word. Also there is a Mexican who assaults and robs the father just after the son has been reprimanded and thrown out of the house for gambling and losing a sum of money entrusted to him by the employer of the father. In this reel Biograph takes a leaf from some of its lesser contemporaries and indulges itself in the dissipation of a near hanging; the rope is being pulled and the victim is leaving the ground when the rescuing party arrives. The Mexican, shot in a gambling house mess following the loss of his loot, confesses his guilt. The daughter and kid brother are especially good. - The Moving Picture World, August 10, 1912
