THE GREAT K & A TRAIN ROBBERY (1926, Fox Films)
Tom Mix plays a railroad detective hired to find and stop
some bandits who have been robbing the K & A
Railroad. The film was shot on location at the Royal
Gorge of Colorado, and has many great scenes for
railroad buffs, and it’s an action-packed from start to
finish. Directed by Lewis Seiter.
