Pre-booking by 19 March required.
Saddle up for a thrilling western in the company of “the king of cowboys”: Tom Mix. Tom has been hired by the Railroad President to put a stop to a series of train robberies. With his trusty steed Tony the Wonder Horse, our hero goes undercover to bring the criminal gang to justice and unmask the dastardly double-crossing company secretary. Along the way he performs some death-defying, train-top stunts and captures the heart of the beautiful gal Madge!
This is a thrill-a-minute cowboy pic starring one of the silent era’s biggest box office draws who made a staggering 291 movies of which only a fraction survive today.
