Storyline

Joe Roberts, a fugitive from justice, bearing that stain that is irremovable, seeks the seclusion of the great north woods with his wife. They encounter a brutal squawman, Bill Weemer, who occupies his leisure in beating a Siwash girl. The wife intervenes and they take the girl with them. Then the sodden, drunken brute, intent on revenge and robbed of his prey, finds the haunting secret of Joe Roberts. In the interim the latter has been stricken by mountain fever and has been nursed back to health by his wife and the Indian girl. The brutal Weemer reappears upon the scene and demands money for keeping silence as to the whereabouts concerning the "man who is wanted," and proceeds to terrorize the Indian girl as of yore. The latter, however, has lost her fear and retaliates by shooting the bully. It turns out that Weemer is a noted horse thief, and that Joe Roberts was falsely accused of the crime, so all ends well with the sheriff in congratulation. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The picture has the advantage of being freshly interesting
18 March 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The saint refers to the wife of a man, reported to be a fugitive from justice; who has followed her husband to the wild lands. The Siwash is a squaw, owned by a villainous white man, and whom the saint rescues from her bondage. If the picture's object, even in part, was to stir us with admiration for the white woman's nobleness to call her the saint it wasn't wholly wise. We are also kept from full sympathy with her by the fact that until the end of the story when, through an unexpected turning upside down of the situation brought about by what was almost a prestidigitator's trick, not organically dramatic, it is shown that her husband is innocent. By no means do we argue that a wife shares her husband's gilt; but her seeming to help him in his escape makes her seem to. The picture has the advantage of being freshly interesting and as entertainment it deserves a good place among others of the week. The wife is played by Myrtle Stedman; her husband, by R. de Roselli; the Siwash by Mrs. Lester Cunio; the brutal squaw man, by Lester Cunio. William Slavens McNutt wrote the scenario, which was produced by Marshall Stedman. - The Moving Picture World, December 7, 1912
