Review: ‘The Last Trail’

In this one there is a free-for-all stage coach race that comes near rivaling the famous chariot race in Ben-Hur. It is replete with thrills and spills.

In this one there is a free-for-all stage coach race that comes near rivaling the famous chariot race in Ben-Hur. It is replete with thrills and spills.

Also, there is something of an added attraction in the fact that Tom Mix has Jerry the Giant, a cute youngster, working with him almost throughout the picture. Carmelita Geraghty, who played a small role in Mix’s last picture, The Canyon of Light, is his leading woman and she more than makes good.

The Zane Grey story opens with an Indian fight. Mix saves the life of the wife of Joe Pascal and Joe, in return, promises to name his first born in his honor. Ten years later Mix, as Tom Dane, is still riding the west, when he gets a note from his old friend to come and see the youngster that bears his name. Pascal in the meantime is the sheriff at Carson City and the stage line, which is carrying the gold, has been repeatedly robbed until the sheriff decides to drive the stage through to the railroad with a guard.
