Like many "Big Four" westerns of the early talkie era, The Cyclone Kid spotlights a popular cowboy star of the silent era, in this instance diminutive Buzz Barton. The youthful hero undergoes all manner of perils for the sake of his sweet sister, played by Caryl Lincoln. Francis X. Bushman Jr., son of the celebrated matinee idol, plays the young ranch hand in love with Barton's sis. The dialogue is poor throughout but fortunately kept at a minimum by director J.P. McGowan. Cyclone Kid truly comes to life whenever Buzz Barton hops on his horse and rides hell-fer-leather to the rescue.
