Trivia

This was one of the Republic Mesquiteer films and the male characters wore typical Hollywood western clothes. This was not true for the female characters--e.g., Rita Hayworth's clothes were the style of 1937, when the film was released. See more »

Quotes

Lullaby Joslin: I know just how Stoney feels about it. Why, my third wife used to raise a ruckus every time I left her. Too bad about her, though. Took her out riding one day. She fell off her horse, broke her leg... we had to shoot her.

Framing A Horse
1 November 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Three Mesquiteers nearly come to an end over Rita Hayworth and a horse. Depends on your point of view as to who caused more ruckus.

First there's the horse, a beautiful wild animal called the pinto stallion. He leads a herd of wild horses which are now protected by law by the government. Some dastardly villains want to shoot the wild ones like The Misfits for dog food. They train a black horse and paint him to look like the pinto so he can start stirring up the other rancher's horses. On one raid, the sheriff is trampled to death by the ersatz pinto. Robert Livingston believes in the horse's innocence, but Ray Corrigan and Max Terhune want him done in and Corrigan's the sheriff.

And then there's the matter of Rita Hayworth or as she was known at this point in her career, Rita Cansino. Rita and Livingston want to get married. The other two Mesquiteers have no use for her and think she's a goldigger. This part of the plot may have been the basis for the Gunga Din story that RKO did two years later.

So who does Livingston wind up with, Rita or the pinto stallion? For that you have to view this film of The Three Mesquiteers series.
