Trivia

Producer Nat Levine went out on a financial limb on this production, Mix's last film. Aging cowboy superstar Tom Mix's $10,000-per-week salary alone exceeded many of poverty-row Mascot Pictures' entire production budgets of many of its earlier films, but Levine was confident that the gamble would pay off. He was right: it paid off big. Mascot reaped $1 million from the serial, giving Levine enough clout (and money) to realize his long-held dream of purchasing his own studio. With the money he made from this film, his reputation grew to the degree he was able to convince Herbert J. Yates to buy the old Mack Sennett studios and enlist the Carr-Johnston team from Monogram to come on board. In the meantime, he took out an option on the studio and rented out studio space to other independents when he wasn't using it, thereby guaranteeing himself a steady cash flow, and eventually Mascot was merged (along with independents Liberty Pictures, Victory and Monogram Pictures) into Republic Pictures, with Levine taking a major position with Republic. The new conglomeration's output would largely resemble Mascot's product for much of the next decade. Levine would be bought out with $1 million in 1939 and end up, divorced, managing a movie theater after losing his fortune at the race track. See more »

serial review
12 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This last film by former silent great Tom Mix ,is a mixture of western/science fiction.Production values are good by Mascot standards,chapter endings are ,for the most part satisfactory,but continuity is sometimes confusing,making the serial drag in spots.Mix is doubled in many of the scenes,but is otherwise satisfactory.Charles Middleton is good as the head villian,likewise,Jason Robards as his aide. Summary;Takes a long time to unfold,but an ok effort from Mascot Pictures.
