Storyline

Richard Young, an American immigrant, and his sick wife find shelter at the Hacienda del Cerro. Dolores, daughter of Estebon Hernandez, owner of the Hacienda Del Cerro, is fascinated by the young American and attempts to win him from his wife, but her advances are scorned by the honest American. This incites the vindictive Dolores to revenge herself on Richard by having Gray Bear, an Indian Chief, abduct Richard's wife. Dolores summons Gray Bear to her home and makes known her plan. The Indian apparently becomes a willing tool, but when he arrives that night with four or five braves, instead of kidnapping the American's wife they capture Dolores, with whom the Indian chief is madly in love. A prisoner in Gray Bear's tent, Dolores is informed she is about to become the Indian's wife. The rescue is splendidly portrayed. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Will make a good and desirable number
26 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story of the Hacienda del Cerro in 1852, and the scene is at the boundary between Lower and Southern California. It is shown that the mistress is loved by an Apache chief. An American and his sick wife take refuge in the hacienda and the girl becomes fascinated by the American, who rejects her advances, and her passionate Southern blood desires revenge. She plans to have the Indian chief carry off the American's wife. The chief abducts herself instead. He is discovered; there's a fight under her window and a chase with a rescue, but the Indian has stabbed the girl and she dies. It is extremely well acted and staged. It is effective and will make a good and desirable number.
