Storyline

Everything he did seemed to be misconstrued, except by the little lady he loved. The town roisters made fun of her and his love. That made trouble and the chief vigilante believed him the cause of it all. So he was "in wrong" all around. The girl's father also sided with the opinion of the world, and sent both the boy and girl away. Mother was on a visit at the time, and therein the need of such a one at home was proved, for once back she sent the father out to bring them home again. The boy in the gold hills had been misunderstood again. Marauding merchants had left their victim on the mountain pass and the boy, coming on the scene, was again accused, but the lie in the end destroyed itself. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Griffith and the best of his stock company -- Lilian Gish and Bobby Harron, Lionel Barrymore in heavy makeup and Alfred Paget -- slew surefootedly from comedy to tragedy and back to comedy -- comedy? In a story about a lynching? Yes indeed. Gish and Harron are, as always, wonderful in this western shot out in the west on a visit. With Gish, you watch the whole body, especially the hands.

Although he directed more than 500 films of every length and description, not much Griffith is available save for four of his features and perhaps half a dozen of his shorts. If a chance to look at this occurs, take it for a corrective to the one-dimensional view of Griffith that has become fashionable.
