There is fun of a kind in it, but no heart interest
23 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This picture exists for the sake of picturing one trip of the rival stages, each trying by fair means and foul to get to Cactus first and so win the express company's contract. The stages were owned by rivals in love. The girl was present with her accepted fiancé, who was not known, and rode in one of the stages. One owner employs cowboys, the other Indians, both giving blank cartridges, to hold up his competitor. The cowboys make the first move, but hearing the Indians attacking the other stage, rush to the rescue. In the melee, the girl and her beau drive off one of the stages and claim and also get the contract. It is speedy, but not a vital picture. There is fun of a kind in it, but no heart interest. It isn't powerful. - The Moving Picture World, October 14, 1911
