One of cowboy star Tom Mix's best films for the Fox company, No Man's Gold was, according to the trade magazine Variety, "a first-class cowboy melodrama," despite the fact that the original director, Tom Buckingham, was replaced by Lewis Seiler mid-production. The story centers on a dying prospector who divides the map to his gold mine into three parts: one for the outlaw who shot him (Frank Campeau), one for comedy sidekick Harry Grippe, and the third to hero Mix. The latter must also care for the miner's now-orphaned son (Mickey Moore) and, at the same time, reach the mine before his enemies do. Director Seiler throws in some fine rodeo footage for good measure and a good time is had by all. No Man's Gold marked the tenth and final time that blond leading lady Eva Novak starred opposite Tom Mix.
