Yellowstone National Park was the setting for this delightful Tom Mix western that also featured a two-color Technicolor fiesta scene starring leading lady Olive Borden. Of mixed parentage (from Mexico and New England a title explains). Mix's Paul Wharton is paymaster of a railroad construction gang who will have nothing to do with his maternal heritage. That is, until he falls for the beautiful senorita Manuelita, whose honor is about to be violated by a gang of cutthroats. "In all, this is the best Mix western that has come along in some time," the trade-paper Variety acknowledged. Leading lady Borden found her career waning after the changeover to sound.
