The Miracle Rider

1935 NR

Blending sci-fi and Westerns and set in 1930s Texas, this 15-episode serial follows Tom Morgan (Tom Mix), a Texas Ranger who becomes an Indian rights advocate. While the ruthless villain Zaroff (Charles Middleton) terrorizes the Indians in order to gain control of their mineral-rich land (for the mineral "X-94," which he believes would make him the richest man in the world), Morgan seeks justice ... the old-fashioned way.
