Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this classic silent comedy includes men shot down with guns, some hand-to-hand roughhousing, and a villain falling off a cliff. There is some drinking and smoking among the characters.

Sexual Content

Some romance.


Rifles are menacingly pointed, and some men are shot with revolvers -- fatally but bloodlessly. Comical scuffling, as one hallucinating starving guy tries to eat another. The violence hardly makes an impact due to the silent format.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

This is a classic underdog story where a lonesome little guy, good-hearted and unpretentious, perseveres and finds success against the odds. Also, the idea that true love is more important than money or looks.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Saloon drinking, New Years celebrating, and smoking by various characters.
