Storyline

May Evans, an orphan girl, is advised by her uncle to leave a lonely ranch where she has been living, come to the settlement and take charge of a hotel. She concludes to take advantage of the offer and immediately demonstrates her fitness for the position, making the hotel one of the most popular in that section. Bob Evans, a young man from the east, who has gone west to pick up his fortune, happens to meet the young woman as she is going to the hotel. This begins an acquaintanceship, which ripens into affection on the part of both, he rescuing her from a very perilous situation, for which she feels duly grateful. Bob Evans comes into hard luck, needs food and drink. He tries to work his face on the flinty-hearted barkeeper, but as that does not work he thinks of a famous gun man named Red Evans and writes his name, passing it to the barkeeper, who immediately gives him all the food and drink he needs.

The picture seems to be aiming at something we don't know what
9 April 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A not very dramatic picture of a girl, daughter of a dare-devil gunman, who finds two other men posing as the notorious dead-shot and makes them explain. Aside from one clown character that is a drawback, the picture is well acted and smoothly told. But it would have been better if the fact that the girl was Red's daughter had been made clear at first. The picture seems to be aiming at something we don't know what until we find out and then the picture is finished. Myrtle Steadman really makes the picture a good offering although many of its hotel scenes, well acted as they are, leaving out that clown, are very pleasing. Marshall Steadman is the hotel keeper; C.E. Reeves the first who assumes Red's name; Florence Dye, the hotel maid. - The Moving Picture World, December 21, 1912
