Somewhat unpleasant
6 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A western offering, in which the husband thinks his former partner is in love with his wife. He shoots the partner as he is attempting to rescue the wife from drunken Indians. It was not clearly shown where the settlers came from, and their appearance on the scene was not very well accounted for. This story does not vary greatly from former offerings of the kind and is somewhat unpleasant, but is quite strongly handled. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
