There is little to commend the film as entertainment
9 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this two reel picture appear the California exhibitors who were recently guests at Universal City. Apart from the scenes of cowboy sports there is little to commend the film as entertainment. The bucking horses and the roped steers furnish some excitement. The story is nil. It seems to be thrown together to make a setting for the visitors. The more serious phases are marred by overacting. The picture is badly drawn out, so much so as to get on the nerves. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
