So he enlists in the Mounted Police.

It seems artificial and thin
4 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A love story of the great Northwest, with a mounted policeman (Thomas Santschi) as its hero and with Eugenie Besserer in the role of its heroine. It is not a one-situation picture, nor is the suspense at any time very tense; but it is interesting. Once or twice, but especially when the tame wolves try to get the heroine's baby (the widow has been turned out of her hut), it seems artificial and thin. The photography is not first class in many of the scenes. In the cast are Herbert Rawlinson, as Drake; Wheeler Oakman, as Sergeant O'Rourk, and Ferdinand Galvez, as Bill Tones. The picture was written by Lanier Bartlett and Colin Campbell and produced by Colin Campbell. - The Moving Picture World, September 21, 1912
