Not all that wild

Jim Wright & Skeeter Bill are two buddies who go from the rodeo circuit to horse wranglers on a ranch. Their boss says he'll give $1000 for the capture of the Devil, a wild horse, the boss hopes to use in his upcoming rodeo. Jim & Skeeter take the challenge, as does Gil Davis, riding champ and all around skunk. Jim & Skeeter capture the horse, but while Jim is away rounding up his horse, Davis kills Skeeter and takes the horse and Jim is framed for his murder. Jim escapes from the sheriff on two occasions and tries to prove his innocence & find the real killer. At times this moves with a good pace & at times its like molasses, like its lead, Gibson, who at times turns in a good role and at times you can clearly see he isn't the greatest thespian, but does have all the fun he can with the role. Cobb doesn't appear to be the lowest of the low horse thief, but does make you believe he's a buzzard. Watching Stephin Fetchit however makes you just want to fast forward your tape/DVD, since he is so blatantly sterotypical & annoying, he can make anyone cringe. The plot point with the escaped bank robber isn't utilized all that well either. Rating, based on Bwesterns- 4.
