The original one-reel 1915 release was combined with three more single-reel releases of the same year, also starring Tom Mix, to comprise a four-reel re-release in 1922, which is the version currently available on video today. See more »
Nothing out of the ordinary here. Tom Mix plays the standard movie cowboy thrust into the standard situations and the film plods through its now well-worn paces in a brisk 46 minutes. It's a thrill to find films like this that still exist, and a disappointment when they turn out to be so ordinary. It's also good to be reminded that cinema's childhood was just as fraught with formulaic stories as it is today.
