Wow...Guinn Williams gets third-billing to two horses!
7 September 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film must have been depressing for Guinn 'Big Boy' Williams. After all, he gets third-billing--just behind two horses! It seems that in the 20s and early 30s, there was Rex the Wonder Horse-mania--and Rex was billed in 15 films! And so, at the time, he was a bigger commodity than Williams--though how Lady the Horse got second-billing, I have no idea...perhaps she just had a better agent!

This is the sort of silent film that will only appeal to a very small audience. First, not surprisingly, you have to like silents or at least be willing to watch them. Second, you have to love animal films--particularly one where the animals are anthropomorphized--in other words, to make them sound more human that they really are. So, if your idea of fun is watching animals roaming about and reading captions that supposedly tell what they're thinking, then you are in luck!!

The film is about a couple wild horses--Rex and Lady. However, there is an evil bully horse named the Killer--and he is nasty and dominates the wild horses. Later, Lady is kidnapped (of sorts) by the Killer and Rex nearly dies but is rescued by a nice cowboy (Williams). Later, the cowboy's story and Rex's seem to parallel, as they are both having girl trouble and bully trouble. So, when Rex watches Williams stand up to the bully and give him what for, he is inspired to do the same and everyone (except the two bullies) lives happily ever after.

For me, watching this film was a bit of a chore. I don't like films that humanize animals and I found it all a bit strange as well as dull. It all just depends on your perspective--you may like this sort of thing. I just found it to be a bit cheesy and silly.

the Killer, Rex the Wonder Horse and Lady Jim Pangle Jim Lawson (not Lawsoon as IMDb indicates) two stories parallel
