It has a touch of irony which is uncommon enough
3 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There is freshness in this offering, though it deals with mining village doings that many pictures have shown. There's an idea behind it and it has a touch of irony which is uncommon enough to be acceptable. The "money" was "come by" in some evil way and we are not sorry to see the tenderfoot lose it. We watch it as it changes hands, until it finally rests with the least dishonest man, who dishonestly keeps it. The photographs are very clear in most of the scenes and the backgrounds (a bit of Rocky Mountain country) are worth seeing. Henry Walthall, Claire McDowell, Alfred Paget and others have roles. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
