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 »

Contrary to the IMDb rating and its reputation, this movie is very good. If you are a fan of westerns but are tired of all the talking and waiting, of endless meaningful glances and a meditative rhythm and you want some ACTION, get this film! This is one of the best action films of all time, with some exemplary stunt work. The storyline is easy to follow, but without any plot holes as has become a standard nowadays. Tom Mix is a great Cowboy and fits the character he is portraying wonderfully. Don't get me wrong, I love Douglas Fairbanks, and admire his artistry, but besides his greater charm, he is nowhere as good as Tom Mix in this film. This is meant as an invitation to all Fairbanks' fans, because this will be exactly their kind of film. At 53 minutes, the film never drags and does what it set out to do almost perfectly. If only more films where this modest.
