Storyline

Ed and George loved Betsy, but Betsy was a flirt. What more natural then, that Betsy should give to each a locket containing her picture and inform each of them of her unwavering love and devotion. But Betsy wouldn't marry a common village boy and they both set out, therefore, together to make their fortunes and win the coquettish Betsy. Mining together, the boys accidentally came across each other's locket and there was trouble immediately. They took a few pot shots at each other by way of showing their faith in the flirtive Betsy. And, could they have been suddenly transported to their home town just then would have seen Betsy pledging herself forever more to quite another chap. Anyhow, a stray bullet uncovered a vein of gold.

A light idea, nicely presented
13 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A good comedy plot, in which Betsy is something of a flirt, we fear, and very generous with her lockets. Cut the duel between the rivals for her hand results happily, for one of the bullets strikes a cliff and turns up pay ore. The boys call off the fight and form a partnership to work the mine. It was just as well, for when they got home Betsy had married another. A light idea, nicely presented. - The Moving Picture World, March 22, 1913
