Claude is marched up to the mouth of a flaming volcano and unceremoniously thrown in. Rosamond, like a true heroine, still refuses to marry the villain. Down the hill straggle Desmond, the wild men and the fair captive. The volcano is just a secret distillery, and the moonshiners volunteer to aid Claude.

It is a film that will grace any bill
31 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A truly Western atmosphere is given to the adventures of our noble bunk hero and the desperate villain, not only by the kind of adventures, but by the backgrounds. No description of them would do them justice. It was seeing the pictures that kept the audience in continuous laughter. One of the best laughs comes at the very end. Desperate is standing in front of a firing squad; he is to be shot when the captain says "Fire." He still is hopeful of "getting" the bunk hero yet. And we don't know whether the command to fire was ever given or not. It is a film that will grace any bill, especially one with a tragedy as the attraction. - The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1912
