A "Brilliant" little horse
28 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tom Tyler, Bob Steele, and Jimmie Dodd play those three knights of the west the 3 Mesquiteers in this film. The guys are accused of murdering a blind old prospector Charles Miller who lived as a hermit in the hills. His only companion was a pony named Brilliant. And I have to say that this is one smart horse. He's the only witness to who killed Miller.

In fact Brilliant is trained as a seeing eye pony, a fact that comes in mighty handy later on in apprehending the real murderer.

Earle Hodgins and Ellen Lowe play a pair of Indians who drive a medicine show wagon and they're taking back the west from the white man one sucker at a time. The two are very funny and Hodgins always adds something to any picture, especially westerns he plays in.

You might become a 3 Mesquiteer fan after seeing this one.
