Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Thoroughly geared for the small fry, this pleasant silent western starred the strapping Tom Tyler, freckled boy actor Frankie Darro, and Tyler's faithful dog, Beans. The three pals (with Darro's sister Elsie Tarron in tow) are searching for the villain, known only as the "Black Rider," who murdered Tyler's father (Bert Hadley). Since sneering Harry Woods appears in the cast, Cyclone of the Range is not too taxing a prairie "whodunit." The film's director, Robert DeLacy, was the father of Philippe DeLacy, a boy actor too decorative for the rough-and-tumble world of series westerns.
