Storyline

The King of a small European country, just a boy, takes an interest in Tom Reed's wild west show. Tom puts on a special show just for the King and the two become friends. When the King takes Tom's advise instead of the Count's, the Count has the King kidnaped planning to kill him. When Tom learns of the Kings disappearance he and his troop of men, without any real bullets for their guns, ride off to rescue him. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Hey Kids! Let's Put On A Rodeo!
9 August 2010 | by (Ramsey, NJ) – See all my reviews

Was there ever anyone more talented than Mickey Rooney? Not a matinée idol but a performer from head to toe. In "My Pal The King" he carries the acting load and puts over a very flimsily-plotted picture almost singlehandedly. He gets very little help from Tom Mix, a cowboy who evidently was not an actor but a personality.

Touring with his Wild West show, Mix shows up in Abalonia, a tiny kingdom ruled by a child king (guess who). It is part western and part comedy and is not really worth the rating of 6 that I give it, but it is a rare opportunity to see and hear Tom Mix, and to witness the splendid star quality that Mickey Rooney had, even at the age of 12.

My copy of this film was 62 minutes, not the 74 as advertised in the IMDb synopsis, which was probably all to the good.
