A feature of the Biograph programme at the Chicago Exhibitors' Convention
This story of the prospector for gold may not be on a new theme, but it is served up in a new way, and very interestingly. Little Mary, as the wife of the claim jumper, takes the part of Faro Kate, and as one of the untamed "wild and woolly" proves that she can hold her own with the best of the specialists in that department of moving picture entertainment. Mr. Mailes played true part of the claim-jumper for all there was in it and added materially to the realism of the picture. Miss Sweet, as the wife of the prospector, was all her name implies. The prospector, his children, a boy and a girl, and in fact the entire company give us in this film their best work. It may be added that this picture was a feature of the Biograph programme at the Chicago Exhibitors' Convention. - The Moving Picture World, August 31, 1912
