CGiii Comment

Laurel before Hardy.

It is a quick, hysterical little flick.

The flouncing gay cowboy is comedy...if you feel insulted by this stereotypical portrayal - then, get a life.

A simple, early joy.

The(ir) Blurb...

Bob Canister has struck it rich in Alaska, but another man learns of it, and steals Bob's claim with the help of a mercenary sheriff. Canister's men are ready to fight, but Bob backs down rather than resort to violence in front of his girlfriend. Later, though, he goes to the other man's home and confronts him, ready to fight for his claim.
