Storyline

Winnie Allen, a pretty western girl, is loved by Dan Wild, whose father owns the Circle C Ranch. Broncho Billy, foreman of the Circle C, also loves Winnie and she favors his suit.

Dan now manages to secure Winnie's engagement ring from her room, forges a note in her writing, telling Broncho she is returning the ring, because he has been discharged for dissipation, then pins the note and ring to the door of Broncho's shack. Broncho finds it, and unsuspicious of the trickery employed, leaves the county. Years later young Wild, now a dissipated ruffian, is married to Winnie.

More Melodramatic Than Usual for Broncho Billy
19 November 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Broncho Billy Anderson gets engaged to Evelyn Selby. Jealous Brinsley Shaw gets Broncho Billy fired from his job and forges a letter that Evelyn has thrown him over because he has been discharged for drunkenness and gambling -- a lie.

This Broncho Billy short film is more melodramatic than most of his movies, and Frederick Hodges has provided it an appropriate score. It's also perfectly watchable in the fine pint that has been restored by the BFI. It's another of the highly variable stories that Anderson starred in for more than three hundred movies for his own production company, which made him the first star of genre western movies over more than a decade.
