A bad complication
9 March 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In this cowboy romance a couple elope and are married without parental consent. They take up their abode in a little cabin. Later another cowboy is brought in badly injured. The woman is introduced as the sister of the young man. The injured man falls in love with the woman, which creates a bad complication. As soon as he is ready to leave he is invited to make tracks along the trail. Chagrined, he goes to the nearest town and almost the first thing he sees is a reward offered for the discovery of the couple. The girl's father has relented. The grouchy cowboy leads the sheriff to the cabin only to find that the father sends her a note asking them to return to the ranch, where a pardon awaits them. - The Moving Picture World, July 22, 1911
