Storyline

A ranchman out in the woolly West while sitting on his porch receives a letter, as follows: "Dear Uncle Jack: Brother and I leave New York for Arizona to spend our summer vacation with you.

He guides the girl to the Colonel's home, but is rudely driven away by the Colonel who does not wish one of his cowboys to pay attention to his niece.

Is carried out with so much dash and spirit
27 September 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Here is one of those active Western dramas from the Lubin studio which are such prime favorites with so many people. The love making is natural. The wrath of the uncle when he sends his niece home because she is flirting, as he terms it, with a cowboy, and the hold-up are all extremely realistic. Then comes along the discharged cowboy, releases the uncle and nephew, rallies the others and storms the stronghold of the robbers, rescuing the girl from the clutches of the greasers. It is all such a mad whirl, and is carried out with so much dash and spirit that the audience is borne along without really appreciating what is occurring before its face. The end, where the uncle gives the couple his blessing, is good and affords a fitting climax to the story which led up to this consummation. Even though there is a good deal of swift movement the blurring is reduced to a minimum and the technical quality of the film is good. In most places the photography is clear. Only here and there little patches show dim and poorly lighted. - The Moving Picture World, June 5, 1909
