Storyline

Phil has redeeming qualities; one in particular, his love for children. This is very easily seen where the poor fellow in a railroad coach is being taken handcuffed to prison.

Difficult to see the wood for the trees
2 April 2017 | by kekseksaSee all my reviews

This film (missing the beginning) is available as part of the Dutch EYE collection where it is confusing given the title "Back in the North Woods". To add to the confusion one also finds it elsewhere identified as D. W. Griffith's In the North Woods, which is a completely different film.

The film's story is as described in the contemporary reviews.
