Storyline

This travesty begins with an encampment of Indians eating their dally luncheon of Boston beans and custard pie. The sunshine of this particular camp is Ha-Ha-Minnie, the chief's daughter, who has a marked fondness for pie. One day she strays from camp to a mountain stream joyously eating a pie, when she encounters a fierce Mexican. Her screams for help quickly bring little Fauntleroy, the big cowboy, to her rescue and instanter she falls in love with her preserver for his bravery. The Mexican, seeking revenge, imparts a pack of lies about Fauntleroy to her father, the chief, who commands her to marry a red man. This statement brings two Indians, who are rivals, into a warm dispute, which they settle with boxing gloves. The winner presents himself to her only to be rejected point blank. The chief, now thoroughly aroused, declares war against Fauntleroy and together with his braves they pursue and capture him. He is brought back to camp and tortured in a most ridiculous manner. ...

Illustrates the absurdities which often creep into the usual Indian story
23 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very funny travesty upon the usual Indian, maiden and cowboy rescue story. While it keeps the audience laughing all the time, it goes further, perhaps, than the producers intended and clearly illustrates the absurdities which often creep into the usual Indian story. Silently the maiden is captured, though she is screaming at the top of her lungs. Fauntleroy is tied to a tree and cruelly tortured, and after he is rescued calmly walks away with the tree to which he was fastened .And there are many other equally funny and interesting episodes in the film. It deserves to be popular since it contains humor of a rare and altogether commendable sort. - The Moving Picture World, October 14, 1911
