Storyline

Sauntering through the Three X Ranch, Red Hawk and his daughter, Natoosa, are accosted by some of the cowboys, who try to take liberties with the young Indian girl. Jack Bangs comes to her rescue and drives off her tormentors. He earns the thanks of Red Hawk and Natoosa falls deeply in love with him. Upon their return to the Indian encampment, Natoosa confides to her father that she is in love with Bangs. Red Hawk, filled with the pride and traditions of his race, goes back to the ranch, tells Bangs he would honor him by giving his daughter to him in marriage. Bangs frankly tells the chief that he is engaged to another. Red Hawk, disappointed and angry, sullenly departs. He tells his braves that they must capture Jack and his sweetheart, Lillian, and bring them to the Indian encampment.

No one would suspect that Robert Thornby was not a real Indian
12 April 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The chief interest in this picture comes from its scenes as illustrations rather than as steps in the progress of a story; for the story as pictured is not plausible. It has some very pretty views. Natoosa is an Indian princess who falls in love with a white man. Her father offers her to him as his wife and being refused is incensed. His revenge is, after capturing the man and his white sweetheart, to stake them down in the desert; but they are rescued by Natoosa. If the red men had been the dominant race, which they never were so near well- built houses, the story might have convinced. No one would suspect that Robert Thornby, in the part of the chief, was not a real Indian. Natoosa, Mary Charleson, is almost as perfect. Robert Burns plays the cowboy. It was produced by Rollin S. Sturgeon from A.S. Behrmann's scenario. - The Moving Picture World, December 28, 1912
