Storyline

Ruby Blackwell, typical young girl of Arizona, lives with her brother Tom, and their widowed mother in a cabin in the mountains. One day Tom takes Ruby on a lion hunt. They track a puma, or mountain lion. Tom shoots the beast, which, wounded, bounds into the canyon. Tom instructs Ruby to proceed to the ridge and await him there, while he follows the puma up the mountainside. Ruby discovers the cubs belonging to the puma which Tom has shot, and she immediately becomes so engrossed in playing with the huge kittens that she forgets the rendezvous her brother had appointed. Tom finally locates her. The cubs are taken home. They grow up around Ruby like friendly dogs. Pete Lopez, a bad Mexican, who admires Ruby very much, tries to steal one of them at night, after Ruby has refused to sell the animal to him, and the baby puma defends itself vigorously until Tom and Ruby rush to its rescue.

The biggest thriller in a long time
10 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

"Bounder" is a tame mountain lion who saves his mistress from a Mexican villain and does other remarkable but very convincing things in this picture. The story is high strung and unusually absorbing from start to finish and is the biggest thriller in a long time. The spectators were markedly enthusiastic. When it was ended some shouted above the applause, "Selig!" He read the name from the screen and there was that in his voice and manner that left no doubt that he was unconscious and sincere. That man will be looking for other Seligs or bill posters and programs. The photographs are very good, although just a bit misty. A big picture from the producer's and from the spectator's viewpoints. - The Moving Picture World, March 23, 1912
