Storyline

Joe Curvey, a Mexican, finds a baby girl in a basket on his ranch. He adopts her. Eighteen years later, a bitter race animosity against the Mexicans prompts Charlie Mason, leader of a gang of cowboys to assault Curvey, when he calls at the local store for supplies. Thinking that they would not molest Dolores, his adopted daughter, sends her on his next errand. A female makes no difference, and the toughs bombard the Mexican's hut. Dolores manages to escape, but quickly returns with Clarence Stowell, and his fellows, who immediately disperse the invaders. Delores and Clarence fall in love. The Mexican, rankling under the many injustices, calls his friends together, and there is a lively battle between rangers, cowpunchers, and Mexicans. The Mexican and his daughter are captured, but are soon released by the timely appearance of Clarence Stowell. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The picture doesn't deserve any special notice
13 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Mexican adopted a baby that he found and she grew up to young womanhood as his daughter. In later years some ugly punchers first insult the girl and attack the old man in his hut, but are driven off by some friendly rangers. There is nothing very fresh in the situation. One of the American cowboys falls in love with the girl, but her father has been treated so unjustly that he incites the other Mexicans of the neighborhood to make a raid on the American ranch. Some are killed, the others are beaten off, and the old man is captured. The puncher who had been ugliest in his treatment of the Mexican and his daughter takes the others with him to the hut, captures the girl, and brings her to the tree where the old man is about to be hanged, intending to hang both together. The Mexican reveals who the girl is. The ugly cowboy seems much concerned and departs without hanging either. The lovers are united. The picture doesn't deserve any special notice among recent "Flying A" pictures. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
