In the bordertown of San Pablo, preparing for an annual 'Mexican Fiesta,' arrives Gagin: tough, mysterious and laconic. His mission: to find the equally mysterious Frank Hugo, evidently for revenge; or is it blackmail? FBI agent Retz is also after the elusive Hugo. Everyone in town is enigmatic, especially Pila, a mystical teenager who follows Gagin around and has premonitions of his death. Also involved are a classic femme fatale and an antique carousel with a pink horse... Written by

In the climactic scene in Hugo's hotel room, Pila is standing right behind the seated Gagin with her hand on his shoulder. But whenever we cut to the reverse angle, she is completely out of the shot. See more »
Knife is good. Is more easy to fix. I got knifed three times. When you're young, everybody sticks knife in you.

The main title card reads, "as LUCKY GAGIN in RIDE THE PINK HORSE." The film's title is in far smaller type than the character name. See more »
Robert Montgomery directs and stars in this seldom seen piece of Film-Noir. A hard-boiled war vet(Montgomery)arrives in the small town of San Pablo as the community is preparing its annual fiesta. He gets the help of a carousel owner(Thomas Gomez)and an alluring young woman(Wanda Hendrix)to track down a profiteer to blackmail him as revenge for killing his buddy. At times it is hard to tell the good guys from the bad. Well directed and photographed. Hendrix is absolutely beautiful. Also in the cast are: Fred Clark and Art Smith.
