Storyline

At the end of World War I, Bouncer, from the Bronx, follows his buddy Ken "Hell-Fire" Austin west, who boasts his name means something in the Great West, where life will be easy and trouble-free for them. Bouncer soon finds that the only person in the West who knows his buddy is himself and Austin. THey get tossed on the chain-gang for sixty days, for non-payment of their café bill, where Ken spots and becomes friends with a stallion, Tarzan, on the open range. The horse belongs to rancher Judy Brooks who hopes to race him in the Cactusville Sweepstakes in order to pay off a note held on her ranch by Mark Edmunds. Edmunds gets Ken freed from the two-man chain gang to train and ride his horse in the race but Ken learns that Edmunds has a scheme going to beat Judy out of her horse and the ranch. He quits Edmunds and takes on the task of riding Tarzan in the race, but has to keep himself and the horse hidden from the Sheriff and Edmund's henchmen.

Hellfire is too strong a term for this oater.
31 December 2006 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Ken "Hell Fire" Austin comes back to his western home with his war buddy Bouncer and after bailing on a cafeteria check are sentenced to a chain gang. Ken is paroled in the custody of Edmonds in hope that the former rodeo champion will race in the champion horse race. Ken however would rather race for ranch owner Judy Brooks, who needs to win the race in order to pay the mortgage, which is controlled by Edmonds. Ken and Bouncer escape the chain gang and are hunted by the sheriff but Ken still plans to enter the race despite the sheriff and plans of Edmonds. A decent B western, but by no means Maynard's best. I think the script could focus a bit less on the interplay b/w Maynard & Pendleton and more of Maynard vs. the sheriff & Edmonds, since the conflict only takes place in the last half of the film. The redeeming point of the film would be the horse race. Rating, based on B westerns, 6.
