Has got the choosing of outdoor backgrounds down to the point of art
Among other things, the camera man or the producer of these Western Essanays, has got the choosing of outdoor backgrounds down to the point of art. A bit of road with a curve so that one doesn't see too much of it, a picturesque slope behind, so that it's kept near us and in the foreground, a couple of trees with peculiar markings, so that our eyes, looking between them, are naturally focused to the point of greatest interest; this is truly a picture. It is presently filled with action by the posse galloping through and filled also with dust. The usual bad man hasn't very much to do with this story; the sheriff chases him out of it in the first act. On the way back from the state line the sheriff is able to help a widow whose horse has run away and wins a bride. Arthur and Julia Mackley play the leads and give us an amusing sweet scene for a final. - The Moving Picture World, January 4, 1913
