Trivia

When the Painted Stallion is fighting the black stallion, this scene is taken from The Devil Horse (1926). This battle between stallions has been edited into Wild Horse Round-Up (1936), Comin' 'Round the Mountain (1936), Hit the Saddle (1937), The Devil Horse (1932), The Phantom of the West (1931), Law of the Wild (1934), and The Painted Stallion (1937). The black stallion is actually the famous Rex the Wonder Horse. See more »

A Bucket Load of Lone Pine
28 December 2010 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Good Autry oater, with lots of outdoor action, and a lively rendition of the title tune. The run- away stallion sequence is especially well done. Also, the Lone Pine locations are dramatic, as usual, but I really like the moody skylines. Naturally, no one watches these matinée specials for plot surprises. Here, Gene's having to win a horse race in order to save pretty girl Rutherford's ranch, and a heck-uv-a race it is since the bad guys, surprise, surprise, don't play fair.

I agree, these early Autry's are superior to the later ones, maybe because Republic's resources could outfit these early productions. Note the well-stocked horse race, plus the "wolf" pack which may look more like "who let the dogs out", but's still an unusual feature for any oater. Also, the comedic bullfight is rather charming and well staged. All in all, the movie's a treat for those who like outdoor action.

(In passing—this early black-coated version of Gene's horse "Champion" is definitely not his better-known later one that was a much lighter color.)
