Storyline

This story is laid in Colorado and deals with the district attorney of a small western town, his daughter and his son, a young man whose weakness is due mostly to his boyish forgetfulness of the duties of life and society rather than to criminal instinct. Seeing an advertisement in the paper of one of the get-rich-quick concerns, and becoming possessed with the desire to make good before his father and sister, he robs his father of three hundred dollars, fully believing that he can return the money in a few days, and also add a great deal more to his income. But ere the money has left his hands, he discovers that the enterprise is a fraud and that his father is now investigating its false methods and is authorized to secure all mail addressed to the company.

The result doesn't grip very strongly
13 August 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A thoroughgoing melodrama making use of improbable incidents; its hero does a technically criminal act, holds up a mail stage, to save his sweetheart's brother. This brother had stolen money from his father's safe, because he had read the ad of the Golden Opportunity Co. and wanted to double the money in a day or so. He then learns that the advertiser is a fraud and asks the hero to help him. The plot is clear and fairly well put together; the photographs are very good and the players commendable. The result doesn't grip very strongly; it is too unconvincing. A fair filler. - The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1912
