Broncho Billy and the Schoolmistress (1912)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Rather far-fetched Western has a new school mistress coming to town, which gets all the guys excited. To have some fun with her they decide to play a prank via a fake robbery since they don't think she'll have the guts to use the gun she has. They get Broncho Billy (Gilbert M. Anderson) to play the role of the bandit but when he's shot everyone at first thinks it was the woman but something more sinister happened. There's quite a bit of plot for just a 14-minute movie and the majority of the time it never makes too much sense. I mean, why scare the woman to welcome her to town if you're wanting to impress her? Okay, it's a joke. But then why would you stage a hold-up knowing that she's carrying a gun and could possibly do something? Either way, I think this film was meant to be part serious and part comedy but neither side works all that well. There are a few amusing moments dealing with Broncho Billy and the mistress but that's about it.
