A simple but well-received silent Western, this film starred popular Buck Jones as a young rancher tracking down the rustler (Jack Baston) who stole his herd of purebred horses. Jones' leading lady in this film, Diane Ellis (here for some reason billed "Dione Ellis"), was a blonde newcomer from Los Angeles who would tragically succumb to a rare tropical disease while honeymooning in India in December of 1930. Chain Lightning was a remake of The Brass Commandments (1923), which was also from Fox and which starred the veteran William Farnum.
