Overly sentimental
19 November 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A western number of about average interest, picturing the way in which an eastern man becomes a cattle thief and is hung by a posse. The coming ot the wife was made overly sentimental. This is conventional and rather old in theme. - The Moving Picture World, April 10, 1915
