A picture that is wholly conventional
9 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture that is wholly conventional; but makes good use of all its material after the rather dull opening. It is the picture of the race to the office of the land claims agent. Olaf, a tramp, is fed by the settler's wife and later finds that certain evil men have discovered a flaw in the papers of his benefactress' husband. He sends the man riding on his horse to save his claim and himself rides on the trunk- rack behind their automobile, cutting the tires with a knife. It lacks the sentimental ending, which is one thing to be thankful for. The camera work is fair. The players, Claire McDowell, Charles Mailes and Harry Carey (Olaf) do pretty well; the picture gave them small chance to act. - The Moving Picture World, May 31, 1913
