Western star Tom Mix's wonder horse, Tony, took center stage in this fine silent oater directed by Lynn F. Reynolds for the Fox company. Tony actually plays a character other than Tom Mix's horse. He is a stallion horribly abused by his Mexican owner, whom he finally tramples to death. Joining a herd of wild mustangs, Tony seeks revenge on humans everywhere. That is, until cowboy Mix teaches him that not all of mankind is bad. Tony later repays the kindness by saving Mix and pretty rancher Claire Adams from a gang of rustlers. One of Tom Mix's own favorites, this Western was based on the short story Alcatraz by Max Brand (aka Frederick Faust). It was re-released in 1929 after Mix had departed from Fox.
