University of Iowa Football hero Rex Bell starred in this, the first of two Bell Westerns produced by Fox in 1928. The studio obviously saw a new Tom Mix in the handsome athlete, but sound ruined all hopes of major sagebrush stardom. Bell did star in series westerns in the 1930s -- but for low-budget companies such as Resolute and Colony. Although not a bad light leading man, Rex Bell is today best remembered as a onetime lieutenant governor of Nevada and the husband of Clara Bow. In this average oater, he catches a gang of bank robbers while taking time out to romance the banker's pretty daughter.
