Nice stunts, breathtaking scenery.
15 February 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In this silent, Tom Mix plays a federal agent who is investigating a ring that is smuggling illegal Chinese people into the country via the Grand Canyon!! This is pretty lame, but the rest of the film surprised me. Although not really a western, I was very impressed by the location shooting as well as the great stunt work. Some of it, particularly the long shots, were probably not Mix himself but they were impressive nonetheless. And some clearly were Tom doing some amazing climbing and other acts of rugged manliness! When you then consider the gorgeous location shoot, it's a film of the genre well worth seeing--especially because the production values of this film are actually much better of the average sound western of the following decades. Not a brilliant plot but exceptionally well executed.
