As for acting in the picture, it is fair all through
12 May 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This story, told so often as it has been in outline, and in which a brother is helped by his married sister who makes her husband jealous, needs to be told in very fresh and interesting surroundings to make it truly worthwhile. In this case, the brother and sister are entombed alive by a cave-in of a mine in which she was hiding him. Her taking him there in this case was very unconvincing, however. As for acting in the picture, it is fair all through. The sheriff perhaps is the most interesting individual. Those who like a typical, conventional Western that is not very lively will like this. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
