Is sure to be popular
Contrasts a fine cowboy character with an artistic egoist. There is a real poet on the ranch as an honored guest and that makes the cowboy write some rough but sincere lines to the girl, who nevertheless prefers a painter, also her guest. A prairie fire with a stampede of wild cattle makes the painter show his cowardice while the cowboy gives his life for the girl and saves the painter, too. It is clearly drawn and made effective. Such a theme as this is sure to be popular and it makes a release safe to bank on. - The Moving Picture World, February 21, 1914
