Without being deeply significant, has freshness
This story, without being deeply significant, has freshness and will hold the interest. The little things given to it by its players add much. It is set in a small Western village and its chief characters are a gambler, a rough cowboy and a "lunger." The scenes show us a bar- room, where these three make a pool which is to go to the surviving one when the others are dead, and it also shows places in and around the tent of the "lunger." There is a girl in the case, of course. The photography is clear enough and the offering shows up well among the others of today. - The Moving Picture World, July 12, 1913
