So improbable that it is rather interesting
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

About as improbable a story as one could wish; so improbable, in fact, that it is rather interesting on that account. The old man hides $500 in the barrel of his shotgun and then thoughtlessly fires it at a chicken thief. But the girl and her lover have already rescued the money. Good photography is the strongest feature of this reel. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
