Rita Hayworth Horses Around With The Three Mesquiteers
14 April 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Prohibited from taking wild horses off government lands, a villainous rancher uses a trained horse to wreak havoc and clear the way for him to take all the "nuisance" horses he wants. Meanwhile, Ray Corrigan, Bob Livingston, and Max Terhune are at odds over Bob's romance with beautiful gold-digger Rita Hayworth.

This interesting, above average entry in Republic Pictures' Three Mesquiteers series is more offbeat than usual, with the unique premise of a horse being being used as a weapon to kick someone to death, Livingston's brooding performance, and a rare note of discontent among the three friends.

In fact, the story is solid enough to have been turned (with a little work) into an A-list western!

A satisfying climax features good animal footage and a neat stunt in which Yakima Canutt takes a dive off some steep rocks.

My only complaint is that Hayworth's unpleasant character takes the money and runs instead of getting her just desserts. The finale should have shown her in New York, trying and failing to cash Corrigan's rubber check!
