Storyline

Dad Means, an old prospector, is rescued from death in the desert by Bud Owens, and is taken to his shack. Eventually the cunning of the prospector strikes a vein, and he and his young partner have a fair offer for the mine. The youth, who has become fascinated with a woman of the mines, is for selling out at once, and, enraged over the conservative attitude of the old man, attempts to end opposition by dropping a stick of dynamite down the shaft upon his head. The old man catches the projectile in his hand and then rounds upon the impetuous younger partner with a gun. The result is the young man gives up the girl and the partners are friends as of yore.

Its chief failure is that it tells too little
13 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Rose L. Ellerbe, the authoress of this melodrama, has provided very little that is new. Her story follows the old kind of plot, but not very skillfully. It gives us the heavy villainess, but leaves the young hero a flabby ninny who is willing to destroy the mine of the man who was his benefactor, merely because the girl tells him to do it. Her reason is that be has "seen through her" and refused to let her get any money out of his protégé, who has fallen in love with her. Even such a story as this can be made effective by careful handling. We have seen some that were exciting, but cannot call this very interesting. Its chief failure is that it tells too little. Henry McRae produced it. Frank Clark plays the old miner; Al E. Garcia, his young partner; Eugenie Besserer, the villainess, and Frank Richardson, the saloon keeper. - The Moving Picture World, February 8, 1913
