an elaborate stage design recreates a wild west saloon interior, with a huge jug of "Red Eye" sitting beside the bar.
A drunk for no good reason except being drunk knocks the hat off a man who has fallen asleep in h...展开is chair, trying to start a fight.
The proprietress squirts the drunk with seltzer to try to calm him down, but he has to be thrown out of the bar. The guys who were playing poker stage right helped the proprietrice, who rewards them with free cigars.
It seems an awfully lot of stage design & big cast of six to create a mere three-quarters-minute show. It's considered a historical moment for the nascent cinema, however, in establishing the western saloon setting for oh so many future westerns, & is sometimes tagged "the first western."
the action is not particularly clear, the ending kind of unresolved, which is typical in early films.
