While it's nothing to be taken seriously, if you're interested in a silent movie that is fun and different, try this one. The plot is purely routine - Nell Shipman and Bert Van Tuyle trying desperately to escape from a gang of vile bandits - but with some distinctive touches that make it "Something New".
Shipman is a good adventure heroine, but the real star of this one is the car. They get their 1920 Maxwell to pull off some stunts that would be very difficult for the toughest of vehicles. Some of the things they get it to do are amazing, and it's worth watching for the automotive stunts alone - these sequences really grab your attention and hold it. The rest is nothing special, but not bad either, and overall this movie is good fun.
