Superb locations with solid action stunts n a mighty good chase sequence.
18 February 2019 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Revisited this film recently. It is one of the most beautifully shot film with solid action stunts. It has breathtaking locations n amazing shots of the Colorado River. The pacing is tight but the humor is offensive, especially that of Curtis McHenry as Snowball with a gun behind his back. The chase scene where the guy fleeing on his horse on one side of the river n the train on the other side is awesome. The opening scene with a train moving fast thru the splendid Royal gorge of Colorado is breathtaking. The gang's lair, shown in the end was something really outta comic books. The horse stunts, the train sequences, the chase sequence n some of the aerial stunts r truly noteworthy.

The plot is based on the actual foiling of a train robbery by Dick Gordon. Detective Gordon (Tom Mix) is working undercover as a highwayman to catch train robbers. Apart from Tom Mix, the horse n the hobo played by Harry Gripp, all did good job.
