Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Zane Grey's often-filmed tale of the gunfighter's pacifist son who is forced into action by his father's erstwhile enemies was given a sumptuous production by Fox and turned into a typical Tom Mix extravaganza with all the trimmings. Mix was awarded a pretty new co-star in the blond Marian Nixon and a good supporting cast that included Harry Lonsdale as Mix's outlaw father and Brisnley Shaw as the main villain, Cal Bain. The story was filmed previously by Fox in 1919 starring William Farnum and would see two subsequent remakes: in 1930, starring George O'Brien, and in 1941, starring George Montgomery, both decidedly in the B-movie category.
