Storyline

By unexplained circumstances, Marjorie Bowman and Harvey Ross are separated. While he remains in his home town, she drifts to one of the unsettled territories of the west. Marjorie is an attractive woman of strong personality and self-reliance. It is not long before a very ardent wooer appears in Jim Duncan, a man of bad reputation and worse character, which he hides beneath a very suave exterior whenever he meets Marjorie. The truth comes out when the sheriff receives notice that there is a reward placed upon his head. The sheriff goes in quest of him and finds him at the saloon. The sheriff covers him with his gun, but he manages by his calmness, to hold the sheriff in conversation and abeyance, then by a quick movement, takes the officer's gun and escapes.

Good views of the desert
31 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Strong Western drama, directed by Mr. Sturgeon. Robert Thornby, as a desperado, gives a convincing portrayal, although the script makes a near coward of the sheriff. Major McGuire as the Indian is good in a part not easy. Miss Schaefer and Miss Charleson are both in the cast. There are good views of the desert. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
