Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tom Mix stars in the "modern" western Horseman of the Plains. Though the story is set in 1928, the plot is as old as the hills, with Mix coming to the aid of a rancher who's on the verge of foreclosure. Falling in love with Sally Blane, the rancher's pretty daughter, our hero vows to win an important cross-country race. And what a race! Starting on foot, the contestants are then expected to commandeer chariots, hay wagons and stagecoaches. By the time Horseman of the Plains has run its 45-minute course, Mix has emerged triumphant, winning the prize money and the girl all at once.
