Non-unique western
11 November 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

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.
