Storyline

Tim, an outlaw, is entirely unsuspected, even by his best friend, the sheriff. Tim has always worn a disguise and he has shown it to but one person, Josie, the girl he loves, and who promises to marry him as soon as he turns over a new page. Josie lives with her Uncle Ben, owner of a gambling house. Tim writes her to be ready to marry him at once, as he has tackled his last job. It is the robbing of a bank, and the sheriff, who is home indulging in his favorite pastime of cards, is notified and starts out to trace the robber. He divides his men, himself setting out alone, but Tim has gotten a good start and, after taking off his disguise, he rides up to the gambling house, which Ben keeps, and secures a room for the night. As this gambling house is also a hotel, the tired sheriff also arrives and asks for a room and is told that all of the rooms are taken, but that he can bunk with Tim.

The picture opens with a chase in the moonlight
22 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Mr. Jack Conway and Mr. George Gebhardt play the two men, leading roles in this picture of red-blood life in the West. The former is the outlaw, the second the sheriff. The picture opens with a chase in the moonlight through pretty scenes which are effectively brought out by Nestor camera work. By accident the sheriff occupies the same room in a hotel that the bad man has and he is discovered. From this point on the action is very similar to a Bison picture of some months back, but a bit more sensational. It has to be very closely followed to be understood. We call it a fair filler. - The Moving Picture World, April 13, 1912
