An Enjoyable & Clever Tom Mix Short Feature
7 March 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This enjoyable and clever Tom Mix short feature combines the western setting with some of the best elements of the slapstick comedies of the era. Mix gets a chance to perform some material that he doesn't usually get the chance to do, and the amusing story works quite well.

Mix plays a ranch hand who, along with the ranch foreman and the other hands, decide to play an elaborate practical joke on a young woman who is visiting the ranch to get some "Local Color" for a story that she is writing. Mix gets to dress and act like a roughneck, in contrast to his usual good guy roles, and it looks as if he must have enjoyed it.

The story is funny, and it has one or two good twists as well. This is one of the best of Mix's early features, an enjoyable comic western that works quite well.
