Storyline

Jim, newly arrived from Maine, informs the miners that he has come to find gold and declares he will stay on the job until he makes good. Pete, Steve and Hoover, three rough westerners, resolve to put one over on the newcomer. They visit the store and secure a bottle of gilt paint, with which they make some nuggets (?). The fool gold is placed on Jim's claim, where he will be sure to find it. The practical jokers have the time of their lives at Jim's expense. Each has at some time proposed to Jean, the belle of the mining camp, and each has been refused. The fact that the newcomer is also a suitor brings them further satisfaction. But Jean is not an ordinary village belle. Not she. When Jim brings her the fool gold and paints a vivid word picture of his future, she goes to the claim to point out his mistake and locates the richest find in the history of the camp.

It makes a good, light offering
14 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A light-hearted comedy and romance that both interests and amuses. The Western rough-necks, among them John Brennan, have fun with Marshal Neilan, the tenderfoot, and "plant" a gilt-paint mine for him. The rough-necks love Ruth Roland, who sees Marshal, laughs at his outfit and at his find, and then falls in love with him. She helps him locate a real mine. It makes a good, light offering; the photography is only fair, a slight picture that will be liked. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
