Storyline

Broncho Billy and his pal, after robbing the stagecoach, divide the loot and part company. Among the valuables in his share. Broncho finds a well-worn Bible and, after skimming over the pages with a grim smile, he puts it in an inside pocket and rides into town. In the saloon, a poker game is flourishing and "Quick-Draw" Kelly, a notorious cheat and gun-man, is cleaning the cowboys of their earnings. Broncho sits in the game, detects Kelly sliding an ace from the top of his boot, calls his cheating at the point of his gun, brands Kelly with disgrace and kicks him out. Burning with revenge, Kelly tries to kill Broncho with a shot through the open door, but the bullet lodges in the Bible and saves Broncho's life. Picking the bullet from the pages, Broncho replaces the holy book in his pocket, rushes out, mounts and starts after the escaping ruffian. After a thrilling chase, both dismount and take to the rocks. Higher and higher Kelly ascends until the distant plains stretch before him ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Mr. Anderson gets a good deal over in this part
25 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This effective picture seems to us the most convincing bad man's conversion that we have seen. In a rough land where there is much outcropping of rock and big boulders, Broncho Billy and his pal hold up a stage. They toss up for first choice of two bags. Billy gets a Bible in his. He reads a little and places it in his pocket where, later, by stopping a bullet, it saves his life. Billy's mind has been impressed by this and when the same Bible takes an unconscious part in other happenings, he is still more impressed. Mr. Anderson gets a good deal over in this part. We like the picture; the audience seemed to like it. It is well made in every way. - The Moving Picture World, June 15, 1912
