A story of the West, told in a gilded city bar by a sheriff to three club men. It is about a prisoner of his who got away. The narrator is, of course, the principal actor in the tale; but the barroom scene is thrown back every now and again to keen the spectator among the group of listeners. This is commendable; it makes the picture more intimate. The tale is worthwhile and very entertaining. We have seen another picture in which the pursued managed to deceive his pursuer by a seemingly mortal wound painted on his breast; but the picture is full of freshness and a very acceptable offering. It will be enjoyed. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
