Storyline

Martha Morse, a young widow, must raise $500 within a few days or lose her government-grazing rights and her ranch. Matt MacGuire, an unscrupulous neighboring rancher, blocks all her efforts to raise the money so that he can grab her property. McGuire also seeks a wild black stallion which has been seen roaming the nearby hills. A large reward has been posted for the capture of the horse. He learns that the horse has been captured by Martha's young son, Bucky. Stymied at every turn, Martha turns to her only friends, Randy Burke and his pal Idaho.

Last Forde Beebe Script
4 May 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

THE KING OF THE WILD STALLIONS is a well-made Allied Artists western starring George Montgomery, Diane Brewster and a nice cast of superior B western actors, including Byron Foulger and Edgar Buchanan.

It also boasts Forde Beebe's last script. Beebe was a long-time B director and writer, whose credits went back to J.P. McGowan's unit in 1915. He never raised his head above the Bs, but knew how to put the elements together. In this one he combines two standards of the genre: the pretty rancher who needs her ranch protected from the dastardly rich man and the taming of a wild stallion.

It is well directed by R.G. Springsteen and features the handsome Vasquez Rocks for the outdoors photography, well-shot by Carl Guthrie. There isn't much surprising in this movie; by this point, the dying B western was as rigid a form as Noh drama. Still, everything is put together as well as it can be. Fans of the genre will not be disappointed.
