Ace of Cactus Range (1924, B&W, Silent):
Diamond smugglers abduct an elderly rancher and his daughter Virginia, who have chanced upon their illegal activities. The marshal and some local lawmen manage to track them through the desert to their mountain hideout. Time is of the essence, because the crooks have abandoned the old man in the desert to die, and gang member Bull, crazed with lust, is closeing in fast on Virginia.
In the mid-1920s, movie bit player George Kesterson had a career-altering name change - he was re-dubbed "Art Mix," his new screen moniker meant to invite confusion with cowboy superstar Tom Mix (who understandably instigated legal action). Mix cuts a dashing figure with his hard riding and athleticism in this modern Western, filled with action and picturesque location photography.
