Provoked laughter in two theaters where this film was seen
9 December 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The only redeeming feature of this reel is the excellent photography of some California scenery. The story is vague and rapid, in fact, there is no story unfolded upon the screen, nothing but a jumble of incidents which apparently have no connection. A mission carrier loves a girl who is also loved by a Mexican, hence jealousy and attempted revenge. Such is the slender thread by which we are supposed to connect a number of exploits which are so impossible and ridiculous that they provoked laughter in two theaters where this film was seen. In one scene where the girl is riding to the rescue of her lover she is surprised by a band of "Indians" in ambush. She jumps off her horse and runs and actually outdistances these pursuers (laugh one). No doubt it is economical to buy costumes wholesale which is probably the reason why these "Indians" were all dressed exactly alike in new garments (laugh two). Not being used to these new togs these men of the mountains could not run faster than a girl. But the laughter only really began when the "hero," who is armed with a single rifle, picks off first one "Indian" and then another who promptly lie down and turn up their toes. By actual count he kills six before his rescuers put to flight. But the impossibility of his feat is so apparent that every time an "Indian" keeled over a titter was heard all over the house. This kind of drama has no place in the program of today. It is an insult to intelligent audiences. - The Moving Picture World, March 23, 1911
