When Edith's mother died her aunt and uncle, living on the Wyoming range, invited her to live with them. Soon after her arrival she rode out alone and, becoming bewildered by the vast rolling expanse of country, became lost. To her delight, she found a small cabin and man, whose gentlemanly manners contrasted strangely with his surroundings. He gravely offered to see her home and, on her arrival under his escort, she was even more surprised at the cool formality with which he was received. Their internet in each other grew, and he called so often that her aunt finally found it necessary to tell her that he was a squaw man. Horrified and heart-broken she taxed him with it. Now at last, the quiet, reserved, almost hermit-like man realized the coldness and suspicion of his treatment and told her the story of how, when a student at Harvard a girl had jilted him and he came west to forget.

It is, in truth, a tip-top offering
20 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very large audience received this fine, human picture with that undemonstrative but most emphatic applause, a slight rumbling of feet. It is, in truth, a tip-top offering and one that we can heartily commend for audiences everywhere. The setting gives us little glimpses of a ranch home and also some broad, sweeping views of a rolling cattle range country, wild and lonely. The action, though it is typical of Western life, has nothing rough; there is no crime, no shooting, no cowboys even in it, except in the distance. It concerns itself wholly with quiet human things and its interest, at every turn, comes from character and not from accident. Marked feeling for character is shown by the acting, and the wider backgrounds show that sense of locality that makes them seem contiguous in the picture, makes the backgrounds in the different scenes hook on to each other. Edith, the Eastern girl and heroine, is Phyllis Gordon, who ideally fills the part. Herbert Rawlinson plays opposite to her a manly young Westerner who has been misunderstood. Harry Ennis and Mrs. Shaw play Edith's parents. Mrs. Shaw has a good part and does very fine work. Camille Astor, Bessie Eyton and Fcrnandes Galvcs also have parts. Marie Evans is the authoress and Hobart Bosworth produced it. - The Moving Picture World, October 26, 1912
