For those who care for much shooting and massacre
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Director McRae produces this story of Indians and white men of a hundred years ago. For those who care for much shooting and massacre the picture will have appeal. Good photography and interesting backgrounds go far to hold the attention. The spectacle of a large body of Indians standing in a compact mass and shooting at a party of white men is hardly in accord with Indian tradition. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
