You're not going to send me back are ya?
Why shouldn't I?
Because I didn't do the things I'm charged with. I didn't do it. I swear I didn't! I was railroaded. You believe me, don't you? Fifteen years in that hellhole - fifteen years for something I never done!

I love Mascot serials! This being one their early 100% all-talking serial however it does creak a bit, but that's the charm of any early talkie. Frank Lanning, the actor playing Cortez is without doubt the most uncomfortable with sound,in chapter 10 actually reading his lines out of camera! Tyler is good as the hero, as always and would go on to better pictures later. Tom Dugan (in my opinion) is absolutely annoying as the stuttering "deputy", comedy-relief, hardly, just annoying! Maybe I missed something but I believe Joe Bonomo is killed in Chap.1, but amazingly makes appearances all thru the rest of the serial.Keep in mind these weren't made to be seen all at once, but 1 chap each week. I LOVE MASCOT SERIALS!!!!!
