On one of these occasions, he left the grey by the roadside, whilst he made his way through the thickets to the brook to drink. Pedro, a half-breed, was eagerly waiting this opportunity, and when Frank stooped to drink, make away with the mare. Several months elapsed when Dolan, a respected ranch owner, visited a camp of horse dealers and purchased a beautiful grey mare, with which he surprised his daughter, Doris.

The picture is almost wholly conventional
26 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The gray that was stolen was a horse, and the man who took him was a rustler and he sold him to Walsh, the father of the heroine, Doris. By means of this horse the thieves manage to bring Walsh under suspicion. Walsh chases the thieves, and the boys chase Walsh. He is caught and about to be hanged, but is saved by Doris. The picture is almost wholly conventional. There is nothing of moment or special interest in it that has not been shown before and shown better. Some of the photographs are good, some are slightly out of focus and give an impressionistic effect to the pictures of hills and trees. - The Moving Picture World, October 21, 1911
