Storyline

It is Barbara Brent's birthday and under her breakfast plate her father has just placed a jewel box. As he sits waiting for Barbara to appear, he recalls the circumstances of her birth, and in memory he is living again in the boom mining town of Gold Bar. As though it were yesterday, he pictures his rapture over the tiny bundle the nurse has placed in his arms and his triumphal entry into the open street that the miners can feast their eyes upon his daughter. His anguish over the death of Barbara's mother, the sudden pinching off of the gold vein and the desertion of the town by all of its inhabitants, recur vividly to him. Barbara coaxes her father and Congressman John Wallace, her fiancé, to take her to the deserted town of Gold Bar as a birthday treat. Arriving, with provisions for several days' stay, they come across an old prospector who has lived all these years near the scene of the strike. He is suffering from hunger and exposure.

The two reels are crammed with story
9 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

In story interest and in the methods used in the screen narration "The Resurrection of Gold Bar," latest two-reel of Kalem's "The Girl From 'Frisco" series, takes its place as one of the best releases of the series thus far. The two reels are crammed with story. There is considerable good riding to be seen in this picture, as well as numerous good western exteriors. Marin Sais and True Boardman have the leading roles. In this episode Barbara Brent goes with her father and her fiancé to the town in which she was born and which has since been deserted by all save an old miner, whom Brent knew twenty years ago. Barbara finds a bag of gold nuggets under the floor of a store that used to be conducted by an evil character. She "salts" the claim of the old miner. This starts a stampede to the town. Through an accidental fall Barbara's father discovers gold. It develops that the bag of nuggets found by Barbara was stolen from the old miner many years ago by the man who has since come back and tried to jump his claim. The gold boom resurrects the town. – The Moving Picture World, January 20, 1917
