There is an ending that will stir the women
21 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

In this Western picture the opening scene seemed a bit prolonged. Robert Thornby and Mary Charleson have the leads, and their work is up to its usual standard. The Vitagraph Western company seems to get the Western atmosphere, to make you feel it. There is in this film one of the harmless holdups which so many noise-makers rail about. However, the picture goes over well. There is an ending that will stir the women. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
