Storyline

"The Kid." Known by no other name, is a daughter of the range and pal of the rough, big hearted men that ride it. Her father meets his death in an attempt to protect her from the insults of a repulsive saloonkeeper. Before his death "The Kid's" father insists, to her utter horror, that she secure above all other things, an education. After the killing "The Kid" follows and shoots the saloonkeeper and then, absolutely alone, with only a few dollars, she sets out on horseback to fulfill her father's dying wish by gaining entrance to the State University. While riding along a precipice her horse stumbles and she is thrown to the ledge below, where she lies unconscious until Joe Emory, a young Irish sheep herder, finds her and nurses her back to life. Two happy weeks are spent together by the young couple, so strangely introduced, and sad are their hearts when the time for parting comes, for "The Kid" is determined to carry out her father's last desire. She arrives at the University ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A little rough and somewhat breezy
9 March 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The heroine of this picture, played by Betty Harte, is a very convincing Western girl, ever, a type, in a limited way, and Marjorie Benton Cooke, the authoress, deserves much credit for creating her. A little rough and somewhat breezy, she is, nevertheless, a true woman. Her dad had wanted her to get an "eddicashun" and although she can't read, she starts for the university to get one, leaving behind her the wild life of drunkenness, murder, coyotes and sheep, in which she has been brought up. Her experiences are convincing enough; but, in general, the picture seems artificial, perhaps solely because of one or two weak scenes. It is good entertainment though, and was warmly applauded by an East Side audience. The producer is Lem Parker. In the cast are Wheeler Oakman, Wm. J. Burns, Frank Clark. Al E. Garcia, Wm. Hutchinson, R.E. Green, Eddie James. Forrest Littlefield. Geo. Hernandez and a host of undergraduates who, by the way, are usually very unprofitable in a picture; they harmed this one. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
