Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
This minor Western was the second of three to team former boy rider Buzz Barton with handsome, young Francis X. Bushman, Jr., the son of the silent matinee idol. Barton played Buzz Davis, whose father is murdered by Buck Logan (Edmund Cobb) when the old man refuses to reveal the location of a mine. Before he expires, however, "Pap" Davis (Frank Ball) manages to secretly pass the location on to his son and heir. Harrassed by Logan and his gang, Buzz hooks up with old-timer Andy Wiggins (Charles W. Hertzinger); Andy's granddaughter, Sally (Caryl Lincoln); and young Jim Collins (Bushman, Jr.). Despite a kidnapping attempt and several outright attacks, the four friends manage to keep the mine safe from Logan and his boss, Matt Higgins (Francis Ford). Directed by the veteran J.P. McGowan, Tangled Fortunes was released to rural theaters by the low-budget Big Four Film Corp.
