Icelandic titles of Tom Tyler films

From Visir, Reykjavik, June 5, 1932
As with other European nations, Iceland was included  on the list inventoried by FBO to show Tom Tyler films in the mid- to late 1920's. Iceland proved to be very receptive to the established star of westerns produced by FBO, then later on, a handful of Monogram films, and of course “Stagecoach” (1939). In one cinema listing in the newspaper Alþýðublaðið (May 25, 1928), Tom is described as “one of the most famous and handsome cowboy actors”. In some cases, some of Tom's silent films were released under their own American title without translation: “The Sonora Kid”, and  “The Cowboy Musketeer”. The Iceland newspapers in which Tom Tyler’s cinema listings appeared in are: AlþýðublaðiðNorðlingur, Morgunblaðið, Vísir, Neisti, and Lögberg. With thanks to Tímarit.is, here is a small list of Tom Tyler movies shown in Iceland between 1926 and 1941:
