Hurricane Horseman was the first entry in cowboy star Lane Chandler's brief western series for Willis Kent Productions. In emulation of Tom Mix (whom he closely resembled), Chandler plays a gun repairman who wanders into a dusty frontier town, looking for work. Through a series of clever if unbelievable plot twists, our hero finds himself in the camp of an outlaw gang, where a beautiful Spanish aristocrat is being held until her daddy can cough up a ransom. Biding his time, Chandler eventually rescues the girl, whereupon the villains draw their weapons and fire -- only to find that Chandler has damaged the firearms beyond repair! Once a rival to Gary Cooper, Lane Chandler was unable to sustain his stardom into the talkie era, though he enjoyed a long and rewarding career as a character actor.
