Edmund Cobb, the uncredited actor who is easily recognizable to Western fans as the masked Rattler in every chapter, is nowhere to be seen in any other capacity as the story progresses, and when the real Rattler is finally unmasked in the final chapter, he turns out to be a different (credited) actor entirely.

Former silent western star Ken Maynard is the main interest in this good effort from Mascot Pictures.He plays a railroad detective,out to find the villian who's causing trouble for a railroad builder.The bad guy,known as the "Rattler",uses disguises,such as facial features of other cast members.This same effect was used in "Hurricane Express". Maynard is good in the lead,good direction by "Brezzy Eason,and good scenic values are its good points.Generally slow moving,but sustains enough interest with a good story line,to keep it interesting.Music score is ok,but very limited in its use.Overall,good effort from Mascot.
