A good look at a true horseman.
26 December 2002 | by (Mountain Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

As Jim "Trigger" Morton, Ken Maynard portrays a man recently released from prison after being framed for bank robbery, who returns to his former community with but a lone cause in mind - to clear his name and avenge himself upon the one responsible for his unjust conviction: Ace Kindall (Warner Richmond); however, fate decrees an additional role for him as the eponomyous crime fighter in this well-made Grand National feature. Maynard, a trick rider for Buffalo Bill's barnstorming troupe, later performed an identical function in Hollywood during the silent era, and his equestrian skill aboard his unique white stallion Tarzan helps to lift this work above the routine "B" Western level, as director Harry Fraser assures that the action moves smartly, with spare dialogue well delivered by such excellent character performers as Walter Long and Earl Dwire.
