Storyline

Marjorie Spofford is a young lady of the utmost culture. A tubercular tendency threatens to undermine her health completely. At this point in her career the family physician orders her aunt, with whom Marjorie lives, to take her west to a Wyoming cattle ranch, for the benefit of her health. On the ranch Marjorie is fascinated by the brawn, vigor and dare-deviltry of Mark Manley, a cowboy. Her aunt, alarmed at the progress of the love affair, telegraphs secretly to Marjorie's brother to send for her at once. Before Marjorie leaves, she exacts a promise from Mark that he will visit her in Boston. On Mark's acceptance of this daring invitation, hinges the whole story.

The audience caught the spark from it and rippled and roared
11 September 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A rattling good comedy that plainly pleased a large audience. The fun comes from the difference in the appearance of a character when seen in a different environment. To get such a situation over as fun to an audience demands naturalness, sincerity. It has been attempted before in pictures; but we do not remember seeing it so well done. It's the girl and cowboy again, but that makes no real difference; the audience caught the spark from it and rippled and roared. In the west, the cowboy seemed a hero to the romantic girl from the east. But he came on a visit to Boston, he and his pal. He didn't cease to be a man, not one whit, but the hero-glamour soon wore very thin. East didn't meet West very well. It's a pity it wasn't more clearly photographed, for it was very well acted and set. Mr. Hobart Bosworth plays the cowboy. - The Moving Picture World, February 24 1912
