The sixth of eight silent Jack Hoxie westerns produced by Anthony Xydias' Sunset Productions, Galloping Thru' begins as a fairy tale about a knight on a white horse. The storyteller is Priscilla Bonner, whose kid sister Doreen Turner mistakes Hoxie for the fairy-tale knight. The girls' rancher father, meanwhile, is falsely accused of robbery, and Jack proves to be a real-life "knight in shining armor" by bringing the true culprit to justice. As an actor, the hulking Hoxie was clumsy and hesitant. As a horseman, there was no one finer. Jack Hoxie made two more films for Sunset before signing a more lucrative deal with Universal.
