A comedy of considerable merit
17 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

This offering is a comedy of considerable merit, particularly owing to the fact that a diminutive cowboy who is derided more or less for his boasting and wagering that he will capture a criminal, for which $500 reward has been offered. Through accident he wins out, receives the money and spends freely. It is well done. Mr. Alexander, the lightweight comedian, did his best work as Shorty. - The Moving Picture World, March 28, 1914
