Each day for three weeks spectators lined the Glenwood Canyon road to watch Tom Mix, Tony the Horse and the rest of the troupe complete the exterior shots for the movie. Mix performed all of his own stunts, including rappelling down the walls of Glenwood Canyon. Mix and his horse also galloped the length of Shoshone Dam in one of the movie's chase scenes. See more »

The story isn't much, but at a brisk 53 minutes you could do a lot worse. Some of the photography is actually quite stunning and impressive, and there's some good stunt work too. Sad to say the comedy relief from Curtis McHenry is particularly offensive to modern viewers, which may go some way to explaining this film's obscurity.
