Horsing Around with Maynard and the Duke
22 March 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

John Wayne (as John Drury) saves a Devil-horse ("Duke") from execution, after the horse's murder trial. Honest. Then, Mr. Wayne ventures out to find the real killer. Wayne and "Duke" have a good screen presence. Ruth Hall (as Ruth) is suitably fetching; she was the niece of novelist Ibáñez, who had several stories adapted for Garbo and Valentino. Henry B. Walthall (as Gaunt) tries to provide some much-needed acting gravitas. The already inferior "Ride Him, Cowboy" swipes its most exciting material from Ken Maynard's silent "The Unknown Cavalier" (1926). The nicely done segments, especially the climatic ending, look like they are from the other film.

*** Ride Him, Cowboy (1932) Fred Allen ~ John Wayne, Ruth Hall, Henry B. Walthall
