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

Ride the Pink Horse is great example about atmosphere in film noir. It is not often that B films are being seen like this one but it's great film in its own right. Possibly one of the unique film noir and Robert Montgomery did great job of directing and starring in this film.
Some may find the title "Ride the Pink Horse" bit ludicrous but it has meaning to it. Look for that scene that has pink horse and you will understand what I'm talking about. However, it's terrific B film in its own right.
Would I recommend this film to my friends? Probably no but I would recommend it to people who like film noirs. It's truly fantastic film noir in its own right.
