I'm not sure where the 212 minutes running time came from, it's really more like 120 at best . This is an old Saturday matinee feature but with only the first 6 chapters, making any viewer investment in the characters useless. There is some unintentional humor and old west / mexican / indian stereotyping, but taken in context, it is relatively harmless. Regretably the image quality is grainy and black-n-white with occasional darkening / lightening of scenes. The soundtrack is also inconsistantly loud or quiet as to be expected with all the rest of the digitally frozen- lost quality of a bygone cinematic era. Even so, it got an "okay" by me as I enjoy watching early filming techniques, sets and costuming.
