Tall, strapping Tom Tyler was poverty-row studioFBO's final silent western hero. A better actor than most of his contemporaries, Tyler was awarded above-average production values, solid scripts and a fine sidekick in young Frankie Darro. In this fine little western, rancher's daughter Peggy Montgomery loves Tom, the handsome foreman. Unfortunately, she is betrothed to a nasty city-slicker type (Bruce Gordon); until, that is, the fellow is shown for the cad he really is.Tom Tyler's career survived the changeover to sound, and he even played in several notable non-westerns. In 1940, Universal surprisingly chose the tall actor to play the title-role in The Mummy's Hand. Tyler might have gone a lot further as a character actor had not an arthritic condition curtailed his screen career.
