Lifted above the ordinary picture story
13 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A speedily conducted picture of the West, in quality like others by this maker. It is lifted above the ordinary picture story of bad-man and sheriff by the acting which is full of character and at times of human significance. Henry Walthall, a road agent, has married Blanche Sweet and she has found that he is often brutally drunk, so she leaves him and gets work across the mountain, where the sheriff, Alfred Paget, falls in love with her. Edward Dillon is the expressman. The story is soon wound up by a galloping to and fro of horses and then punctuated by a pistol shot. It will surely hold. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, March 22, 1913
