I was lucky to catch this film in Los Angeles at CINECON 38, it turned out to be the surprise hit of the festival.
18 September 2002 | by (Culpeper, VA) – See all my reviews

I was lucky to catch this film in Los Angeles at CINECON 38, the annual early film festival over Labor Day weekend. Like most silent films, seeing them live, on a big screen, with complimentary musical interpretation and an appreciative audience turned this movie into an moving picture event! Some folks thought to skip this one as it had no major stars or director. But it turned out to be the surprise hit of the festival. A real entertaining romance, action, train thriller with comedy, drama and charming acting. PLOT: Versatile silent-film leading lady Eva Novak goes the "Pearl White" route in Dixie Flyer. She plays a plucky female telegraph operator who falls in love with a handsome railroad worker. The hero risks life and limb for the sake of the heroine - and vice versa. The most exciting scene finds Cullen Landis at the wheel of an out-of-control handcar as its speeds headlong towards an open bridge. The story, which was actually a series of all-but-unrelated incidents, was the handiwork of H. H. Van Loan, a specialist in sports and action yarns of all kinds.
