Storyline

Stern parents have ever been relentless obstacles in love's young dream, but it is perhaps quite doubtful if ever love could equal the accentuated bliss and anguish of these two. She refused to eat for her hero and for her he bore the marks of battle, an eye made black by a cruel parent's fist. Tired of such an unsympathetic world, they sought the wilderness, where, had it not been for Indian Charlie, these two "babes in the wood" would have ended their dream in a manner quite too disagreeable to think of.

A flash of comedy at unexpected moments
12 April 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Henry Walthall has the role of Indian Charlie, who, although strong in mind, has failed in the hero test through a weak body. He incites a massacre in order to raise himself in the estimation of his fellows. If one of the latter be not Frank Lanning then this writer has poor eyesight. There is a love story running through the picture. As in most Biograph pictures there is a flash of comedy at unexpected moments, just enough to ease the tension. There are some fine outdoor settings. In one of the scenes, where the boy and girl lovers are seated on a hollow log, the head of an Indian protruding from the end of the decayed tree gives one a start. There are several situations similar to this one. The picture goes over all the way. - The Moving Picture World, December 28, 1912
