Storyline

Old man Jackson was born in Kentucky. So was his father and his only son, Bruce. Hence it was not surprising that Bruce's grandfather began a feud with George Perriwell, which his son had sworn to carry forward. But Perriwell moved to a remote part of Kentucky and Jackson was never able to execute his promise. When Jackson lay on his death-bed the memory of his promise to his father recurred to him. He called Bruce, told him of the feud, gave him the family enemy's name and swore his son to avenge the parental honor. This Bruce promised to do. When Jackson had been buried, Bruce packed his belongings and started westward. Carefully he treasured the badly scrawled name, "George Perriwell" in his pocket. In the desert Bruce's horse died. The lad staggered bravely forward until, water gone and with dry parched throat, his exhausted frame gave way. Two hours later a prairie schooner appeared.

A more human picture than the last six or seven Flying A's
6 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In that broad, open land that the people have come to know and grown to like as a background for pictures that give glimpses of epic doings, is set this dramatic story of love and hatred. Out in the great West the man (Kerrigan) from Kentucky fell in love with the daughter (Miss Von Trump) of his family's enemy. The feud anger, bitter, relentless, and deadly, had gripped him, but love, deep, sincere and true, had gripped him also. In these the struggle is hot, but love wins. This seems a better, more human picture than the last six or seven Flying A's. The photographs are clear, but have little artistic atmosphere. It is well acted, of course. - The Moving Picture World, May 11, 1912
