Good Tom Mix movie
20 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

Tom Mix western movies that I have were contemporary for their time. This movie was made in 1917 and the setting is 1917. I particularly liked the low key humor. Maybe they had to; no laugh track. This movie was no ground breaker, but except for Buck Jones, I don't know any other cowboy who could come close to Tom Mix as the personification of the upright western good guy. I also kind of liked the way the purty girl saved Tom instead of the other way around.
