Effectively handled and well acted
30 September 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A substantial two-part offering giving a story of red-blooded frontier people who are not hampered by doubts in their good and in their evil. It deals with a wrong done to a trusting mountain girl by a ruthless surveyor who chances to come to the valley and of the stern vengeance that her brother, Pierre, takes on the malefactor. This part of the story is raised to a higher plain by the fact, clearly shown, that the killing of the villain keeps him from continuing in his nefarious work of destruction and saves the happiness of another girl, his intended victim. The whole is effectively handled and well acted and makes a clear and deeply interesting story, freshly put on the screen, if not new. Good backgrounds help. - The Moving Picture World, June 27, 1914
