Its best qualities are the pleasing personalities of the players
11 December 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture opening in burlesque vein and closing with a bit of dandy comedy. It was not till the very last scene that a woman's way of doing things was fully revealed. A woman was elected sheriff. She gets shot in the arm by a bandit dressed like a woman, and her daughter goes out to get the bandit. She gets him, but finds that he is her lover. After she has him safe in prison, she repents and wants to release him, but because he wants her to unlock the door she decides not to. Its best qualities are the pleasing personalities of the players and the excellent photographs of well-chosen scenes. - The Moving Picture World, July 13, 1912
