Storyline

Canfield, respected rancher, is involved in crooked horse racing, and also leads an outlaw gang! Some 10 years before our story, the gang raided an isolated cabin, leaving 5-year-old Frankie an orphan. The boy grows up wild, his only friends the wild horses...now joined by El Diablo, a savage but very fast race horse that Canfield steals and loses, in the process killing ranger Elliott Norton. Norton's ranger brother Bob now appears in the region to find his brother's killer; menaced by the outlaws, the vigilantes, and the Devil Horse, his only chance may be to enlist the aid of the now-speechless Wild Boy.

Fine players are well served in an action-packed serial.
12 June 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

It's a thrill to see a fine actor like Harry Carey in the lead of this ripper of a serial. Especially when he's matched against a great villain like Noah Beery, Senior. Also most enjoyable are the contributions of Greta Granstedt as the plucky heroine and J. Paul Jones as Beery's cringing henchman. Even Frankie Darro comes across quite effectively as the athletic juvenile.

Chapters one through six are jam-packed with thrilling action chases and whirlwind stunts. Unfortunately, the pace slackens a bit in seven, whilst eight and nine are economy chapters. Happily, the serial reverts to form in episode ten which not only introduces new material, spiced with plenty of action, daring stunt-work and an exciting cliff-hanger, but jolts the viewer out of his seat with the most rousing running insert in the entire serial.
