Early John Ford Tom Mix
22 November 2017 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

This one is more Frozen North than Western but it can be lumped with the silent cowboy movies of it's day and in that company it's quite accomplished.

The bad hats are after the Gold Mine, that has made Eugene Palette and Will Walling rich, and resort to skulduggery which puts their opponents on "the death trail" being sent into the wilderness without food or shelter to die of exposure. Hero Tom Mix, who doesn't really blend in, faces freezing weather, wolves, rapids and fur hat nasties.

We can only guess that he triumphs as the end is missing on the surviving You Tube copy but the cumulating dangers and the great snow country scenics do give this one an edge and it's fascinating to see movie giants Mix and John Ford working together even on a minor effort.
