Excruciating Lengths
12 March 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Law Of The Wild is nothing more than a question of who has proper title to Rex the Wonder Horse. What might have made for a decent enough story for a B western feature is stretched out to almost excruciating lengths in this serial.

Former silent screen cowboy Bob Custer owns the wild stallion Rex whom he is trying to break. But Richard Alexander who works for Custer tries to kill him and Alexander thinks he's succeeded. Alexander steals Rex and sells him to Richard Cramer. Custer pursues Alexander and catches up with him, but then Cramer kills Alexander and frames Custer. So for most of the 12 chapters Custer is on the run from the law and from Cramer and henchmen.

Custer also has the aid of both Rin Tin Tin and Ben Turpin. Do I need tell you who is more help? Please note that the former Mack Sennett regular is billed right underneath the two animal stars of the serial and above Custer, heroine Lucille Browne and the rest of the human cast. He had a bigger name than the rest.

I'm not sure fans of those old serials and I am definitely not one could even bear up under the repetitious perils and rescues of The Law Of The Wild.
