Hoping to shed itself of the onus of its low-budget predecessor PRC Pictures, Eagle-Lion productions occasionally invested in such above-average endeavors as Red Stallion in the Rockies. Color-filmed on location in Colorado, the story revolves around a former circus horse who has escaped to the hills. The stallion poses a threat to local horse ranchers via its habit of "kidnapping" prize mares for his own female entourage. When the ranchers organize and set out to kill the stallion, he is sheltered and protected by circus worker Arthur Franz and Wallace Ford. Only by committing an act of heroism does the stallion receive a stay of execution. Silent-screen star Leatrice Joy makes a rare talkie appearance as the wife of wealthy rancher Ray Collins.
