      The Tornado is a 1917 short Western film.
      It was Ford's debut film as a director.
      The film is considered to be lost

      It was also written and starred John Ford
      with the director even doing stunt work.

      The Tornado can be described as bleak and tense.
      The main genres are drama and western.
      In terms of style, The Tornado is a silent production.
      In approach, it is serious and realistic. It is located in the USA.
      Visually, The Tornado is black and white.
      Original length was either two or three reels, depending on the source,
      and run for approx 30minutes.
