Storyline

A bandit, after robbing the pay-master of the ranch, drops his mask, which is found by Lieut. Rogers. Rogers arrives at the home of Anita de Vidal, where he obtains a glass of wine and the mask drops to the ground. He explains how he found it, and incidentally incurs the jealousy and suspicion of Juan Ramirez. Juan is notified of the robbery, and remembering the mask, starts in pursuit of Rogers, whom he supposes is the bandit. Rogers sees him and his companions coming, and thinking them bandits, fires at them and rides away. Anita gives him shelter in her home and sends Juan on a false scent. He returns and enters the house where he finds Rogers. They are about to take the law into their own hands, when Don Pedro de Ramirez arrives, after capturing the real bandit. Due explanations follow, the money is restored to the rightful owner and the lovers, Anita and Lieut. Rogers, are reunited. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Has little thrill and not much originality
13 August 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A melodramatic picture which has little thrill and not much originality. There is, however, one moment when the action, which takes the form of a struggle on the tip of a precipice, becomes tense; that is the only thrill in the picture. The backgrounds are Mexican. There are two Americans, one is a bandit and the other is suspected. The suspected, innocent man is pursued, but includes the Mexican posse at the edge of a cliff. The heroine, a Mexican girl, hides him. He is captured at her house, but at the moment when they are going to hang him, the real culprit is brought in and the innocent lover is freed. The photographs are good pictorially, but have a blurred effect that interferes very much with clearness. One can't distinguish faces of players who are riding. It is a filler. - The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1912
