The story told is an involved one
7 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Unusually beautiful Western scenes reproduced with photography which is practically perfect and a wealth of action that is sensational in the extreme will make this two-reeler win its way. The story told is an involved one; so involved, indeed, that one is well satisfied to lose it early and devote his attention to genuine admiration of the strikingly effective distance views. - The Moving Picture World, June 27, 1914
