Produced and directed by poverty row maven Benjamin F. Wilson (the "F" stood for Franklin!), this minor silent Western featured stunt-rider Yakima Canutt as a cowpoke hired by an obsessed rancher (Leonard Trainor) to catch and tame a wild mustang. Canutt's equine co-star was Boy the Wonder Horse while Wilson associate Neva Gerber supplied the obligatory romantic interest as the rancher's daughter. There were a couple of villains as well, of course, and both Al Ferguson and Bud Osborne, fine stunt-riders in their own right, made the most of their stereotypical assignments.
