Storyline

As the story unfolds itself it is revealed that the Earl of Glenmore is a western cowboy who came to American in his very early childhood and of whom all traces were lost. Finally, however, he is discovered to be the legal heir to Glenmore Castle and also the guardian of Lady Eleanor and Lady Jane. He is requested to return to England and take possession of his inheritance. We then see the western atmosphere brought into the English home and are shown the meeting of Buckskin Jack with his two young wards. He does not fit well into the atmosphere of the monocle and the tea cup, but nevertheless his manhood comes to the surface when he realizes that Lady Jane is about to marry a society man whose appearance does not please him. He proceeds at once to investigate the man's character. In a strong dramatic scene, the Earl discovers Lady Jane's suitor cheating at cards and in cowboy fashion informs the gentleman that that isn't the way cards are played out west.

It is like a good apple with a knotty coat
4 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The backgrounds of this romantic story are happily in keeping. It contains some exquisite scenes and pictures around a magnificent dwelling which passes very well as the home of the Earl of Glenmore. It it not a very convincing story as conducted, but there is a sterling quality in it; it is like a good apple with a knotty coat. The earl was "discovered." He was a cowboy and was flabbergasted when he learned that he was the earl and had three cousins to look after. He appears at the ancestral home. He is dressed in a dignified way, but as a cowboy. He wore a soft hat, frock cost, flowing tie, boots and a revolver. The English girls and men didn't like his manners, which was strange, seeing he was an earl. The old English butler seemed also to show contempt for his manners, which was still stranger. He, although greatly misunderstood, manages to save one of his distant cousins from a bad man. She sees through it in time and with her sister tries to make up. At the end, the sister and the earl seem to be in love. - The Moving Picture World, December 23, 1911
