Storyline

A strong dramatic Patheplay abounding in thrills and intensely dramatic and unexpected situations. Bert Barker, a young ne'er-do-well, finally exhausts his father's patience, who orders him away from his home and forbids him to return. As he goes across the fields he discovers the body of a man who has just been held up and killed by a highwayman. While examining it he is seen by some men, who assume that he is the murderer. Bert, however, escapes and goes west. The highwayman in the meanwhile goes on to the town to call upon his sweetheart, whom he eventually marries. Later on they also leave for the west on a prairie schooner. Their party is attacked by Indians and all the men are killed. The massacre is discovered by Bert Barker, who finds the girl (who has lost her memory from the shock) and takes her to his cabin. Later they are married by a circuit rider.

As a whole, the picture is held up very well
16 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture in two parts of both East and West that leaves a deep impression. Its hero is an innocent man accused of crime who, escaping to the West, lives in a lonely cabin. He finds and brings to his home a girl, the sole survivor of an Indian massacre, whose memory has been clouded by the experience. She doesn't know who she is, but lives with the refugee as his sister until a circuit preacher suggests that be ought to marry her, which is done at once. The method of clearing the man of the charge of the crime by the Indian, of the true culprit dead with the evidence on him (we are aware that the rescued girl was the villain's wife, but she doesn't know it yet); the bringing of the hero and his wife home and the recovery of her memory, make an absorbing story. The woman at first thinks she is an unintentional bigamist, and her finding the truth makes the pleasant ending. There is some weakness in the acting of this scene, but, as a whole, the picture is held up very well. The last act made tremendous demands on the genius of the player who took the woman's role. - The Moving Picture World, November 1, 1913
