Plenty of action in this Tom Tyler silent film
9 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

"The Texas Tornado" is a gem of a Tom Tyler silent film from FBO, mainly because it has survived and been transferred to DVD (Sinister Cinema). Only a few minutes of this print are missing although a press release in the The Honolulu Advertiser dated August 20, 1928 does mention one of the many fight scenes, this one which takes place on top of an oil derrick on the Briscoe Ranch in the film. There is plenty of non-stop action in the movie, along with some tender moments shared between Tom and Nora Lane and Frankie Darro. Darro idolized Tom Tyler in real life and it shows throughout the story. Even though it wears a B-western label, "The Texas Tornado" is recommended for general family fare or silent film fare.
