In a change of pace, cowboy hero Tom Mix plays a Canadian mountie in The Cyclone. Despite his new surroundings, Mix comports himself in the same fashion that he would in any of his western epics. This time, Mix is hot on the trail of fur smugglers. Hoping to rescue heroine Colleen Moore with the least amount of noise, Mix muffles the hoofbeats of his horse Tony by covering the animal's hooves with burlap. In her autobiography, Colleen Moore recalled that, shortly after play-acting at being kidnapped in The Cyclone, she was briefly kidnapped for real by a lovestruck Native American who worshipped her from afar during filming (don't worry, folks; nothing happened).
