Not missing a beat, Tom teamed with Universal for a trio of chapterplays.  JUNGLE MYSTERY (Universal, 1932) is a safari yarn with Andy Hardy's screen sister Cecilia Parker as the female interest; Tyler played a red-coated mountie sergeant with pretty Jacqueline Wells (later known as Julie Bishop) in CLANCY OF THE MOUNTED (Universal, 1933); and PHANTOM OF THE AIR (Universal, 1933) was a vintage airplane story whose title aptly describes the plotline.  [Tidbit: both JUNGLE MYSTERY and CLANCY OF THE MOUNTED are among the dozen or so "lost serials".]

Squeezed in between these Universal cliffhangers were four sagebrush cheapies for producer Burton King and the short-lived Freuler/Monarch film production company.  This quartet included THE FORTY-NINERS (Freuler/Monarch, 1932), WHEN A MAN RIDES ALONE (Freuler/Monarch, 1933), DEADWOOD PASS (Freuler/Monarch, 1933) and WAR ON THE RANGE (Freuler/Monarch, 1933).

Above and below, note the catchy phrase to lure the distributors, theater owners and audience: "A Monarch Epic of the West"
