Storyline

The Chief's son, Silver Water, returns from college and is met at the station by the tribe. The Indians make merry to celebrate his homecoming. Hal Benton, an easterner, rides on to ask his way to the hotel, where he is stopping with some friends, among them his fiancée, Veda Mead, and her father. Knowing that the Indian ceremonies will interest his friends, Hal obtains permission to come the next day and bring his friends.

It was to have a savage struggle, primitive man fashion
29 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Miss Dorothy Davenport plays, in this picture, a society girl who visits an Indian village with friends, and flirts with a young chief, played by Mr. Gebhart. This chief's head is turned and he falls in love. She foolishly encourages him. He follows her to the city and calls, in war feathers, he a Carlisle Indian. This was audacious in the producer; it was, we at first thought, commendably subtle, but as it turned out, the picture needed it; it was to have a savage struggle (primitive man fashion, a present day fad) between the Indian and the girl's fiancé, played by Jack Conway. The picture is interesting, it is well acted, doesn't drag and presents the sharpest kind of contrasts. The struggle,and what followed, doesn't convince. The photographs are good. The film is likely to be popular. - The Moving Picture World, April 27, 1912
