A Most Remarkable Wild Stallion
27 May 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Bob Steele and Eddie Dean teamed on this B western done in color, but the title role of Wildfire was played by a horse. A most remarkable wild stallion who is being blamed for the loss of stock by several ranchers.

Steele and sidekick Sterling Holloway are horse traders and Dean is the local sheriff. After Holloway is shot by the bad guys, Steele and Dean join forces to apprehend the bad guys and clear the good name of Wildfire.

This is a nice independent production from Screen Gems Features which I believe later merged into Columbia Pictures. Dean who was a singing cowboy gets to warble a couple of nice sagebrush ballads. The color utilized was something not often seen in B pictures from poverty row studios.

Fans of the B western should like this one.
