Storyline

Leading a generally dissipated life, Jack is sent into the West by his father. He meets Dare-Devil Anne and she reforms him. When Jack wired his father that he intended to marry Anne, the old gentleman took the first train West. The cowboys took him prisoner and he was treated to the unique ceremony of watching his son marry through a large telescope on the mountain side. Still obdurate, the "boys" playfully held him over a yawning chasm until he consented to the marriage. Later, the father met Dare-Devil Anne and what follows make 1,000 feet of good comedy.

One or two brisk gallops in it for fun
13 August 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A romance and comedy of La Mesa, Cal., and of last week, perhaps. Dad was rich and his boy had nothing to do but smoke cigarettes, so Dad sent the boy out to the West to be made a man of. The boy fell in love with Daredevil Anne and the picture shows the stages, the boy as he was and the man she made of him. Dad, of course, didn't know Anne. When he heard her name for the first time he was a bit put out. The lad had become so independent, though, that Dad had to hike out to La Mesa, where he too learned something new. He grows to like Anne as much as the spectators like her. It has a picture of awkward riding and there is also one or two brisk gallops in it for fun. It is not quite a feature picture. It affords several good laughs and has a pleasing freshness. - The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1912
