Storyline

Charles Rawden is a man of violent temper, which is shown in a quarrel with his friend, Tom Wallace. Nellie, to whom both men are paying court, accepts Tom as the more desirable life partner. Rawden's temper is uncontrollable; he becomes involved in a saloon fight and almost kills his man. Nellie, with her husband, goes to Alaska. Rawden, who is now called "The Sky Pilot," is engaged in missionary work in the same place; he accomplishes much good, and makes many converts to the Cause. An epidemic of disease breaks out among the people. "The Sky Pilot" is called to help in many a cabin and home. His friend, Tom Wallace, is stricken down with the disease. Charles insists upon sending Tom to the nearest military outpost and persists in sending him there on his own dog sled, while he goes afoot.

The photography is somewhat below the standard of this company
26 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Love, generosity and forgiveness are largely dealt with in this well- conducted but rather complicated picture of Alaska in winter. It has the usual qualities of Vitagraph Alaskan pictures, including good acting, interesting dog-sleds, Indians and snowy mountains. The photography is somewhat below the standard of this company in one or two of the scenes, especially in one showing four tepees, it is very poor. But the story is very interesting and also instructive. Its atmosphere is very religious; there's an effective picture of a conversion and one of an Alaskan funeral in it. One very small fault is noticeable. The sky pilot falls overcome and is snowed under, is found by Indians, rescued and taken to the tepees, but he nevertheless comes out of the tepee a day or so later with a fresh white collar and cuffs. - The Moving Picture World, August 12, 1911
