Storyline

While sightseeing among the ruins of an old mission on the Mexican border, Mary Blake and her father come across Tony, the Greaser, strumming a guitar. Tony is instantly attracted to the girl. Mary listens entranced until the music is finished and then offers him some money, which is gently refused. She smiles at Tony and he stands looking after her with a rapt expression, already in love with the girl. A little further on, her father falls and sprains his ankle. Mary, unable to help him, runs back to Tony, and between them, they get Mr. Blake to the carriage. He gratefully offers Tony employment on his ranch. Mary smiles in a friendly manner and Tony eagerly says he will come. At the ranch, Tony receives rough treatment at the hands of the foreman and cowboys, and seeks solace in his guitar alone in the moonlight. Mary sees the boys tormenting the Mexican and takes his part. Later, Hammond proposes to Mary and is accepted. He speaks to her father, who approves the match. Tony one day...

A pleasing release
4 August 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story with picturesque ranch settings, with George Cooper and Myrtle Gonzalez in the leading parts. The Mexican falls hopelessly in love with the girl, but she cannot marry him. He sacrifices his life later in defense of the ranch. This is a pleasing release. - The Moving Picture World, May 16, 1914
