Tarzan (the horse) is the best actor in this movie
17 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

Some B western fans consider this to be Ken Maynard's best movie, that's why I picked it as the first Maynard movie I've watched since childhood. It's quite disappointing. Ken is a poor actor, worse than most of the B western stars of his era. If you like singing cowboys, you may enjoy him a little bit more, because he does sing as well or better than most of the cowboy singers of the time. Overall acting in this movie was fair, with Ken noticeably having the most trouble with his lines. His horse, Tarzan, is featured in the two best parts of the movie, horse fights. The horse fights looked quite realistic, & either they were real, or Tarzan is quite an accomplished actor. Fairly thin plot, later used by Gene Autry. Save your money on this one, & buy any Hopalong Cassidy movie instead!
