Unable to legally capture and sell a herd of protected wild horses, corrupt rancher Rance Macgowan uses his trained killer horse, Volcano, to substitute for the real leader of the herd and cause havoc and death among the ranches. With the government about to drop the restrictions on rounding up the herd, the Three Mesquiteers find themselves in the middle of the controversy after their friend, Sheriff Miller is killed by Volcano.

a bit out of kilter
1 May 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

This film answers the question about a cowboy's greater love: for his woman or for his horse? Although the bond with his woman exceeds those between Stony and the other Mesquiteers (Tuscon and Lullaby), after THEY pay her to leave, Stony's still stickin' up for the horse. And rightly so. The horse ACCUSED of being violent, was actually framed by a TRAINED horse, owned by a guy who wants the protection of hundreds of wild equines to be lifted so that he can round 'em up. Stony does a duet with his girlfriend, billed as Rita Cansino, who later became better known as Rita Hayworth. But, to hell with her...it's the HORSE that's important: an example of the order of priorities which is responsible for my opinion about this movie: things somewhat outta place.
