Happy Cardigan, chief of a group of oil well drillers, is having his work sabotaged by a group taking orders from a mysterious boss called the voice. Cardigan takes under his wing a young boy, Jimmy Williams, whose father, framed for murder, is on the run from the law as well as a group calling themselves the Vanishing Legion. For 12 chapters its up to Cardigan, Jimmy, his horse Rex to save Jimmy's father from falling into the hands of the agents of the voice, get the oil drilled in time to meet the contract, and discover the agenda for the Vanishing Legion. For 1931, this is a pretty good serial, but a lot of the time the direction is weak, with at times a point-and-shoot format and lots of silent stock footage spliced in. The serial does have its good points, Harry Carey is perfectly cast as the rugged oil driller and does show a lot of nerve with his acting. The "Voice" is a nice gimmick for Mascot and the identity did surprise me. Rating based on serials- 6.
