In the middle of the 19th century, after bloody war with Mexico, Americans have begun conquest of the huge territory of Texas. At the new owner of a hacienda of Kasa-del-Korvo of business go far not brilliantly. Besides there is a terrible event: completely his son disappears. Suspicion of murder falls on the young mustanger Maurice Gerald with whom the owner's daughter is in love. When it seems that the execution is inevitable, the main witness of crime suddenly appears.
The Mayne Reid novel "The Headless Horseman" has been always very popular in Russia. I read this fine book at the age of thirteen and even now I read it sometimes. What we see in the picture is a bad camera working (sometimes actors can't be seen as they stand out of camera), bad acting and terrible ending (very hilarious). Also the Headless Horseman is simply ridiculous.
