The lapse of time is not well shown

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago
1 September 2017

This is a very strong and convincing two-reel offering, giving us the story of a mother who was parted from her baby in its infancy. The boy fell into the hands of Indians and became known as Running Elk, the chief's son. His mother married the colonel at the fort, and twenty years later she learns that Running Elk is her son. The lapse of time is not well shown here in some of the characters, particularly the mother. After a stirring engagement in battle, Running Elk claims his mother, who dies in his arms and is given an Indian burial. Good photography and altogether a desirable release. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
