The story itself is unmoral
31 December 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Western featuring G. M. Anderson. In this instance, certainly, the featuring was overdone. There are only ten hundred feet in a reel, and when too many of those hundreds of feet are given over to a dialogue between Anderson and the woman of the company, without any apparent object other than featuring, it is a question if this will interest other than the lovesick moonstruck letter-writers. The story itself is unmoral. Anderson takes the oath of deputy sheriff. The smuggler's daughter, his sweetheart, sneaks in behind the deputy when he has the smugglers under his pistol and puts her hands over his eyes long enough for her father and his companions to turn the tables. Then she goes to the sheriff and notifies him, following which she warns her father in time for him to make his escape. The deputy as he sees the horseman disappearing in the distance says: "I am glad your dad is safe across the border." - The Moving Picture World, July 27, 1912
