A wild stallion is blamed for "kidnapping" local mares to build a harem! Cowboy Jack Perrin, however, believes the real culprit is smooth-talking Robert Walker (whose pencil-thin mustache was a dead giveaway of his evil intentions), and manages to rescue the stallion from the glue factory in the nick of time. Produced by that graveyard of silent screen western stars, Syndicate Film Exchange, this early sound oater died at the box-office because of inept sound recording and a silly script (by the veteran Carl Krusada who should have known better). It did feature one unusual scene, however; when the rogue stallion sees a wanted poster bearing his likeness, he simply eats it!
