Storyline

Rex Allen comes to California as a wagon train guide during the period of the great Spanish ranchos and finds his old buddy Slim, from when they were U. S. Cavalrymen, working for fiery-tempered rancho owner Mike Reilly. Reilly has being losing a lot of his fine, blooded horses, and he is sure they have been lured off to join a herd of wild horses. His niece Claire Reilly, whose beauty conceals a cold murderous nature, and his foreman Gil encourage him in this belief, but they have actually been stealing and selling the horses, and they are planning on killing the old man and enjoying his possessions together as Claire believes herself the heiress to Rancho Reilly. Rex's timely arrival saves Reilly from their first attempt when Claire, on the pretense of going for help, has left him to be trampled to death by the wild stallion leader of the herd.

No Phantoms, but live action
15 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

There are no phantoms in Phantom Stallion among the humans or the equines. But this is a pretty good Rex Allen western which finds Rex going to old Mexico to visit his old army pal Slim Pickens who is the foreman of a ranch that Harry Shannon owns.

Harry has a brogue in this one to rival Barry Fitzgerald. He married a Mexican woman and his niece by marriage Carla Balenda is his heir. He also has an adopted minor child Peter Price who is the son of his housekeeper Rosa Turich. If this were not a western that was aimed at a juvenile audience, the script would have been more frank about Price's origins.

In any event Balenda and boyfriend Don Haggerty who is the foreman have been stealing horses and selling them and blaming the loss on a wild stallion. Then they try murder and succeed in blaming the stallion for killing Shannon. Of course Rex and Slim get to the bottom of everything in the fashion of the B westerns of the time.

The B western was winding down at this time, something that Herbert J. Yates of Republic did not foresee. Items like Phantom Stallion were being done on television now and Rex Allen was the last of Yates's stable of cowboy stars and in a year he would leave the studio also.

Still the stories and the productions of these were at their best at the end and Phantom Stallion is a good film with no phantoms, but lots of live action.
