Dramatically clean-cut and effective
17 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story of a lonely farm. Lionel Barrymore plays the farmer who has had the team harnessed to go to town with money, Claire McDonald plays his wife. Harry Carey plays a scheming farm hand who, with a helper, is digging a well for the farmer. He knows about the money, gets the farmer out, knocks him on the head and throws him down the unfinished well. Then he ties up the wife and, with his accomplice, drives away. The wife manages to get free and helps her husband out and they follow the criminals on horseback, coming up with them at a lonely shack where there is a struggle ending in the safe recapture of the money. All this is clear, dramatically clean-cut and effective. It is a picture that will hold strongly and is a good offering. The photography is not artistic, but is sufficiently clear to bring out the picture's punch. - The Moving Picture World, June 28, 1913
