Shirley shines as the most naive, wide-eyed woman in the West in this loose adaptation of Bret Harte's mining-camp saga. The lissome miss skips and hops through the saloons and bordellos, fetching her besotted father, Kibbee, home from his drunken forays and pouting prettily after being

startled by the all-too-frequent gunplay. When she is kissed by Beal, Shirley assumes that she is affianced and hastens to the whorehouse seeking the sage counsel of a senior resident anent the caveats of connubial arrangements. Innocence triumphs over improvidence, of course. The film was

originally made in 1918 with Mary Pickford and in 1922 as THE GIRL WHO RAN WILD.
