Storyline

It has never occurred to the sleepy village of Sturgis, in Arizona, that a doctor, an M.D., was really necessary to the welfare of the community and there was not much enthusiasm among the loafers at the Sturgis Hotel, when the proprietor read aloud the following note, addressed in him: "Dear Sir, I am going to practice medicine in your county. Please reserve a room for me, I will arrive in a few days. Cecil Burton, M.D." Sturgis suffers an awakening, however, when the stagecoach drives up, a few days later, and deposits two persons, one a lanky young chap, and a small, good looking woman. There is not much enthusiasm when the supposed doctor is ushered into the hotel office, followed by the young woman. However, when they discover that the lanky person is a book agent and that it is the winsome young woman who has come to cure for them "all the ills that flesh is heir to" the situation looks decidedly up.

Acted with all the dash and spirit which characterize the work of the Essanay players
3 June 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A humorous picture, depicting the experience of a pretty little woman doctor who goes to Arizona to practice her profession and whose presence so works upon the cowboys that they all require her aid almost instantly. Men who never knew what sickness was are speedily afflicted with the most serious ills to which humanity is heir. Then comes a real accident, to which she refused to respond because she supposed, like the others, it was a false alarm. However, this is romantic and when the last scene disappears from the screen some malady that medicine and surgery cannot cure seems to have afflicted both. The picture is acted with all the dash and spirit which characterize the work of the Essanay players, and is certain to be popular. - The Moving Picture World, June 4, 1910
