The picture is rather dull
10 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The photography of this offering is far below the Biograph standard and, perhaps in consequence, our interest suffers. The picture is rather dull from whatever way one looks at it; yet it has the typical Biograph atmosphere and characters. We find the three brothers who leave the ranch to seek, gold, which they find, and die; are killed accidentally yet because of their greed. The tender-hearted son, who remains, gets married and is happy, though poor. Most of what takes place around the gold hole doesn't convince strongly. The weakness of the picture is that it stands for something rather than is something and the mind denies the harsh side of it. because, since the author is seen consistently building up a statement of opinion, we, on our part, are led to be critical. - The Moving Picture World, June 7, 1913
