The Great K & A Train Robbery

1 
THE EXTERIOR SCENES 
OF THIS PRODUCTION
WERE PHOTOGRAPHED IN
THE ROYAL GORGE OF
COLORADO, U.S.A.

2
The Westerner -
  Crack train of the K & A
  Railroad. Matching mighty
  power and terrific speed 
  against the distances and 
  dangers of the rocky 
  mountain country.

3
The president's private car
  roamed the rails on an
inspection trip to end at
his western home.

4
Eugene Cullen -
  President of the road.
     ... William Walling.

5
Burton Holt -
   Cullen's secretary. If
   he's a college man -
   it must have been
   Vassar.

     ... Carl Miller

6
"We can't afford to handle 
any more bank shipments
with our trains continually
held up by bandits!"

7
"If it wasn't for me, they'd 
steal the engine."

8
Snowball -
   One of the few dark 
   clouds without a silver 
   lining.

9
"Train robbers got 
you scared?"

10
"Who, me? No suh - this
here cullud boy is all
 set. Hold me up an'
 Ah'll germinate -"

11
"If Ah pull dis string once
more - WHAT PRICE
GLORY!"

12
DeLuxe Harry -
  Who wouldn't think
  of riding under any-
  thing less than the
  president's car.

         ... Harry Grippe

13
A meeting place of the
 gang near the street
entrance to their under-
ground lair.

14
Bill Tolfree -
   Whose gang has defied
   the rifles of the K & A
   and outwitted its best
   detectives.

         ... Edward Peil, Sr.

15
"No word from Cullen's
secretary in a week -
what does he think
we're paying him for?"

16
Tom Gordon -
  Dropped down from the 
  rim of the world -- a
  stranger -- asking no
  questions -- giving no
  answers.

             ... TOM MIX

17
"If Holt double-crosses 
us, we'll save Cullen 
the trouble of firing 
a crooked secretary."

18
Tony -
  Whose human intelligence
  aids his master in his 
  perilous work.

19
"There's Cullen's daughter.
She's been on a dude ranch
up the river and is probably
going to meet her father."

20
"She's a richer haul than
the K & A ever carried.
The old man would pay 
plenty of ransom for her!"

21
Madge Cullen -
  Would do anything in the
  world for her father --
  except marry Holt.

             ... Dorothy Dwan

22
"Get your men down 
in the cut."

23
"Better not struggle - you 
might get hurt!"

24
"Some girl being kidnapped
- that's the sheriff's posse
after them -"

25
"Come on, boys - get him!"

26
"Take care of Madge, Holt."

27
"Stop the train, Holt - I'm 
going to turn this bandit
over to the posse!"

28
"Sorry I can't stop for 
tea - or whatever your 
father drinks."

29
"Hold everything, whiskers,
until I can get to you."

30
"Captain! Don't you
remember when we
were in the Signal
Corps at Verdun -"

31
"- how you saved me from
taking out that French girl
and spending fifty dollars -"

32
"- and how you borrowed
my fifty and bravely took
her out yourself?"

33
"I'm trailing train robbers
for Cullen, president of
the K & A -- but he
doesn't know it."

34
"I've just learned that Holt,
Cullen's confidential secretary,
is one of the crooks. That's
why I'm keeping my identity
secret."

35
"You never did like a
quiet job!"

36
"How would you like to 
work with me? - you
look like a bandit."

37
"Right at your back, Sir -
but don't lose me."

38
That Night -
  At the railroad president's
  western residence.

39
"Watch Tony - he thinks
he has to go wherever
I go."

40
"That Arizona bank wants to
know why we don't deliver
their gold bonds and I can't
tell them we're afraid of 
hold-ups -"

41
"We'll send the strong-box
on the Special No. 10
tomorrow - take a chance
that the news doesn't 
leak out -"

42
"Don't be alarmed, Miss
Cullen, I'm just a young
bandit trying to get
along."

43
"You might get nervous
and swallow that little
cannon!"

44
"Remember, mum's the 
word - and I'll tell you 
a little secret tomorrow."

45
"No, Dad, I haven't seen
anyone."

46
"I didn't do it for you -
it was for my father.
Excitement is bad for 
his - heart."

47
"This kind of excitement is
good for my heart."

48
"Are you with me?"

49
"Right at your back, Sir."

50
"That bandit probably
overheard our plan to
ship those gold bonds 
on No. 10."

51
"Why not send fake bonds
with armed guards on that 
train and -"

52
"- carry the real treasure
with us on our train."

53
"She's a great girl! I sort of
hate to have her think I'm
a low-down train robber -"

54
"Stick around the private 
car and watch Holt. I'll
be up the road."

55
"I fooled Cullen easily.
He's carrying the bonds 
on his own train."

56
"We'll hold you up after 
the second tunnel."

57
"Holt, you're a great 
help to me!"

58
"I believe you're thinking
about that bandit."

59
"Money - is - on - Cullen's - 
train -"

60
"Holt - has - tipped - off -
robbers - to - hold - up -
engineer - after - second -
tunnel -"

61
"He's in with the train 
robbers, Mr. Cullen -
I heard everything -"

62
"Surely, you don't believe 
this tramp!"

63
"You oughta believe a man 
when he tells th' truth fer
the first time in his life!"

64
"I'll go back and flag
No. 10."

65
"Tom trusted me - an' I 
failed him -"

66
"Tom - you mean that
highwayman?"

67
"Tom Gordon - a bandit!
Why, he's the detective 
your father sent for!"

68
"Well, Miss Cullen, every-
thing's all right, and 
now I can tell you that
little secret."

69
"I know everything - he
just told me."

70
"What's the matter,
Buddy?"

71
"Never mind, old pal, I'll
bring you the box -"

72
"- I'll bring you the 
bandits, sweetheart!"

73
"Better put this on, Holt -
you might catch cold."

74
"If you don't quit drinkin'
that stuff, you'll drown 
yet."

75
"Just a minute, Miss 
Fortune - where you
goin'?"

76
"The helpful young man on
the end of my rope, used
to be your secretary."

77
"Two souls without a 
single thought!"
