A late entry in First National's series of silent Ken Maynard Westerns, this film starred the athletic Maynard and his magnificent and increasingly popular horse "Tarzan" in a rousing rodeo adventure. Maynard played Cal Roberts, a young rodeo cowboy coming to the aid of a girl jockey (Gladys McConnell), whose father is facing bankruptcy. Cheyenne was scripted by the talented Marion Jackson, who also wrote some of rival Western star Fred Thomson's better vehicles. Warner Bros., who had absorbed First National (and its Burbank studio complex) in late 1928, later used the title Cheyenne for both a 1947 feature and the popular 1955-1963 television series starring Clint Walker.
