Storyline

Alice Atkins, artist, specializes in wild animal painting. She falls in love with Hortez, an intrepid animal trainer.

While she is painting in an enclosed arena some lions, the diabolical Barker turns into the arena a hungry and ferocious leopard. The efforts of Alice to defend herself brings Hortez unexpectedly on the scene. He kills the leopard, but one of his shots flying wild, ends the life of the would-be assassin Barker.

The Brute, would you believe it, by Hobart Bosworth
21 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The artist is portrayed by Kathlyn Williams; the Brute, would you believe it, by Hobart Bosworth. This is a team that would make any picture, and these two make this one. The story is of the circus, and there are many animals, an elephant, lions and leopards. There is a realistic encounter between the artist and a leopard, which apparently is shot to save the life of the artist, but probably is not. There is a thrilling climax. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
