Storyline

Having proved he can ride a bucking bronco with the best of them, young drifter Montana is hired on at Dan Hearn's rodeo ranch. Montana is in for a rougher ride than he figured on when both Dan's daughter Sunny and his top female rodeo rider Rita take a shine to him. The pressure really is turned on when ace saddle buster Rance, jealous over Rita's attention to Montana, goads Montana into riding Wild Fury, a man-killing stallion nobody has ever successfully ridden before.

Excellent and unique

Tom Keene is a western hero of whom I had not seen much until recently, with Turner Classic Movies showing this one about four one morning in December of 2003. I do hope there will be more.

This particular movie made me a fan of Keene and of RKO westerns with one viewing.

"Saddle Buster" is, literally, unique. There is a cast of excellent characters, a story quite unlike any other B western I can call to mind, and it is presented beautifully.

What makes it unique is what is NOT there as much as what is. I won't mention what is missing and perhaps spoil it for any first-time viewers.

I urge all western fans to watch it. I just wish I had recorded it to be able to see it again.
