The first of seven Western featurettes produced by low-budget entrepreneur William Pizor and starring silent screen cowboy Wally Wales, Arizona Cyclone also featured Silver King, a horse formerly belonging to the late Western star Fred Thomson. Pizor had discovered Silver King stabled in the San Fernando Valley and reportedly rented him for a symbolic amount. Wales was paid more -- but not much -- and the seven featurettes were filmed back to back with a stock company that also included silent star Franklyn Farnum, Fred Parker, Barney Beasley, Jack Kirk, Herman Hack, Bud Pope, and Sherry Tansey, the brother of director Robert Emmett Tansey. Wales played a cowboy coming to the aid of a banker (Farnum) and his daughter (Karla Cowan), who are in hot water with a gang of outlaws. The screenplay for this 19-minute Western was by Al Lane, who had starred earlier for Pizor in the feature Western The Galloping Kid (1932).
