The photography is weird enough
27 July 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Vitagraph picture which has elements of dramatic interest. A little girl is stolen from her frontier home by the Indians and taken down the river in a canoe. Her pioneer father discovers his loss and starts after her. Meanwhile she has »been taken to camp, where she is turned over to the care of the women. Among them is a girl scarcely older than the captive, who, when the braves are asleep, assists the little one to escape and go to the banks of the river, where her father sees her and takes her into his canoe, with the Indians, who have awakened and missed their captive, in full pursuit. He shoots one Indian and the other is killed by the child's mother just as he reaches the shore. The photography is weird enough to attract attention and the acting is reasonably good. - The Moving Picture World, March 27, 1909
