Miss Bush plays a very interesting young heroine
11 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This picture deals with the notorious vigilance committees of the rough days in the West. These were lynch-law regulators of manners and customs. The kind of work they did is shown with some vividness in the opening scene. The eucalyptus of the title was a special tree near the heroine's home and a trysting place. Miss Bush plays a very interesting young heroine, just growing into womanhood. The climax of the story takes place under this tree. It is very sensational; but there is an originality in all that is pictured that keeps the mind from taking any morbid impression from the horrors, and feeds it on the human elements that are shown. This reviewer thinks it a very strong and commendable picture. One wishes the photography were better. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
