Storyline

Saunders is an outlaw, but he has a heart as tender as a woman's, and when he looked down from his mountain retreat and saw the burning cabin of the Warrens, he rushed to their rescue and offered them his hut until they could obtain a better home. Mrs. Warren was very ill and a doctor must be gotten at once, so Mary told Saunders. Realizing that there is a price on his head, he hesitates before starting for the town, where the sheriff lives and the reward is posted, but the exigency of the trip urges him on. But before Saunders and the doctor reached Warren's home, Mrs. Warren died. Saunders was recognized while going through the town, and the sheriff struck out upon his trail. The returning doctor directed the sheriff to the outlaw's retreat, where he caught him and made him a prisoner. Mary pleaded for his liberty but the sheriff was firm.

I've Seen This Story Before
27 October 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

In this western, bad man Edgar Jones comes across Clara Williams and her mother, outside their burning cabin. He takes them to his cabin, but mama is sick. At the urging of Miss Williams, Jones rides to town for a doctor, risking capture and prison.

It's a common enough story for westerns of this era; I've seen at least two Broncho Billy Anderson shorts with the same basic plot, and one Vitagraph. The question is, then, ho well does director Frank Grandin handle his cast and crew? He had appeared in 95 shorts for D.W. Griffith before taking over the megaphone, first for Universal and now Lubin. Considering the acting ability of Jones and the virtuosity that Miss Williams would display opposite Broncho Billy, William S. Hart -- who, presumably proposed to her, as he did to all his leading ladies -- and other features, I'd say not particularly well. Still, the excellent camerawork of this short, which was a standard for Lubin, offers something to recommend it.
