Tom Mix chapter not worth much

The feature, "Arizona Trails" is fairly decent as regards the image and the sound. The story is a bit slow and creaky, as is about normal for mid-1930s westerns from the little independent studios. Runs about 46 minutes.
The Tom Mix piece runs about eight minutes and is just a jumbled mess of various scenes from a movie that was made when he still often portrayed a semi-comic "rube" character. Don't look for a coherent story or for any of Mix's later dashing persona.
The Tim McCoy program runs twelve minutes without commercials. The picture and sound are decent but, for me, the subject was boring. Chief Yowlachie tells a story in sign language and Tim translates.
