The film was based on a stage play and is perhaps the earliest period drama (at least of the kind we would recognise as such today).

 Canadian Journal of Film Studies: Film chronicles in Montreal's La Presse, 1906-1908   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Film advertisements are an important source of history, but they are more revealing about the industry's attempts to foster a particular image of itself, and about who producers, distributors and exhibitors believed their audiences to be, than they are about the actual individuals or groups that may have attended films.
Just like the films produced by the forces involved, advertising provides no easy access to either intention or performance, but it can help to reaffirm the difficulty that businesses have in forging their public corporate identities, particularly when those identities are constantly in flux.6
With all this in mind, it becomes imperative that film advertisements in Montreal newspapers in the early years of the century be examined for what they express about the developing role of film exhibition and promotion in Montreal during this era.

There is also the sense in the film, as there is in many westerns from the silent era, that the spare, rugged sets depicting the "western" town are contemporary in design; that, in essence, the movie was truly shot in the Old West, thanks to the first-hand knowledge and experience of its designers.
Like "Hell's Hinges," there is a feeling to the 15-minute 1912 film, "The Confederate Ironclad," that while it may not have been created in the era that it depicts, it drew its design and atmosphere from artists who had first or at the least, secondhand knowledge of its particulars.
The film gets a bit confused in spots -- there are two villains -- and the romance seems rushed, but it chugs its way through the familiar plot points and has some nice moments of fantasy.

In a backhanded way, the film is a love letter to the movies, all the way from Colin's youthful bicycle-driven projector to his four months long berry-distillation project that nets him 22 seconds of finished film.
As the film opens (it’s preceded by an equally excellent 15-minute-long short called "Signing Off" by Robert Sarkies), the rotund Jackson is tramping about his neighbor’s garden shed in which, he reveals, he’s recently uncovered an astonishing cinematic find—an old steamer-trunk full of film canisters marked with the name C.

As stated on the web page analyzing Edwin S. Porter's short films it is disorienting and/or confusing to understand what is going on in the film based on a victim and firefighters perspective of an emergency situation.
"Porter used a technique some film historians call 'temporal overlap,' in which we see the same event twice, from different perspective." This technique is chopy and hard to follow where as in the second decade of the twentieth century a new and clearer way of making films was introduced.
In D.W. Griffith's 1908 film, "The Fatal Hour," he introduced "intercuts." These changes allowed the movie goer the opportunity to see two different scenes at the same time.
