The Texas Tornado (1928)
I'm breaking up my own existence...
The quality of the picture is not that great (according to Sinister Cinema, the copy that does exist came from Europe; judging from the few telegrams and letters written in what appears to be Dutch in the movie, it looks like this film copy came from the Netherlands or possibly Belgium) but is worth watching for the stunts and a daring rescue attempt that Tom makes. He was 26 years old when he made this film for FBO. In the dialogue card that appears below, the “brat” being referred to is Buddy, portrayed by child actor Frankie Darro. There are some great fight scenes in this silent film, one which involves Tom being lassoed off his horse by the ranch lease stealers. Look for a surprise ending!
