The story, especially at first, is obscure
20 August 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very exciting picture of card playing for high stakes; but the story, especially at first, is obscure. It begins by showing a love- at-first-sight episode between a cowboy and the daughter of a ranch owner. There is a mortgage, but on whose ranch isn't clear. The girl's father, perhaps in hope of winning the money to pay off the mortgage, if it is on his farm, plays with a sharper. The cowboy lover also happens along and comes into the game. The ranch owner, father of the girl, puts up his deed and loses. The sharper shows four aces, but the cowboy has a full-house with an ace. There's a grab for the stakes and then a shot. The man with the four aces falls over the table. The cowboy, after grabbing the deed, makes away. He is followed by the sheriff and, although the girl tries to save him, is caught. Meanwhile they have found a whole deck of cards up the wounded man's sleeve and presently he comes out of his unconscious state. He is ordered out of town. It is clear enough to interest deeply if watched closely and will make a very good filler. Many of the photographs are excellent. - The Moving Picture World, February 10, 1912
