He had two tasks: taming the horse and cleaning his name.
12 April 2003 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Hoot Gibson is not your average western hero. He looks more like the guy next door, only his face seems to be more made up, an inheritance from the silent films. He is a strong presence on the screen and you end up liking him. In this film he is a champion at the rodeos and takes the challenge to tame a wild Palomino horse. He also is accused of murder and has to prove his innocence. Stepin Fetchit plays a very funny guy, but his character reminds you too much of the indignity of slavery, so there is a certain sadness in it. If this film would have been made in the forties, it would have been considered a b western, but it was made in 1931 and it was a pioneer of a style.
