For some reason, this potentially very interesting silent Western from FBO remains the most obscure of the poverty row studios' Tom Tyler series. Living alone on their mountain, Lucille (Jane Reid) and her kid brother Buddy (Frankie Darro) suddenly receive threatening letters and are even visited by a ghostly apparition or two. With no one to turn to, little Buddy writes his favorite cowboy star, Tom Tyler, who immediately leaves the safe confines of FBO to come and investigate. Once on the mountain, Tom quickly discovers that a gang of thieves are attempting to drive Lucille and Buddy off their property in order to get their grubby hands on a hidden treasure. Tom heroically catches the outlaws and promises to bring the two kids with him to Hollywood. Also released as Terror, this Tyler Western should not be confused with the Warner Bros mystery melodrama The Terror, released that same year.
