The picture leaves little to be desired
8 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A film story of the open, written by Frank McGlynn. The one strongly romantic scene is where the outlaw takes care of the lost sheriff's daughter. The wood views were particularly fine, and except for a little slowness in development the picture leaves little to be desired. Mary Fuller and Augustus Phillips play the leads. The night scene at the camp fire was good and the closing scenes were artistically handled. A pleasing romance with a somewhat conventional plot. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
