A deep picture to the thoughtful spectator
23 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

One would hardly recognize Miss Bush in this new role as La Mesa the barmaid who, in her rough surroundings, wins respect by being something of a hoyden. This aspect of her character is commented on strongly by her attitude toward the refinements of life when they are brought within her scope. The player's work in picturing this shows much insight. It is the arrival of a minister with his mother and sister that widens her view. It is a tragic picture, for the girl's character is drawn against a rough, frontier background of drinking, gambling and murder; but it is also a deep picture to the thoughtful spectator. It is a substantial offering and will be very acceptable with a good comedy in good, strong bill. - The Moving Picture World, January 20, 1912
