Once Tom Mix signed up with Fox, the studio wasted no time grinding out such economical and entertaining westerns as Cupid's Round Up. The plot was a typical Mix melange of romance, comedy and fast action, with emphasis on the latter. The film's highlight was a scene in which Mix, hoping to escape a pursuing posse, jumps towards a moving train and crashes neatly through one of the passenger windows. It was a superb "gag," and one which the star would repeat, with variations, throughout his career. The trade magazine Variety paid the ultimate compliment to Cupid's Round Up, characterizing the picture as "typically American."
