Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Fourteen-year-old Buzz Barton is the "Little Savage" in this compact FBO western. Once again, diminutive hero Red (Barton) tries to help the adult characters in their fight against the villains. Also once again, Red is most effective whenever he's roping and riding -- especially the latter. In lieu of his usual sidekick Frank Rice, Buzz Barton is teamed with grizzled old Milburn Morante, who was still in films as late as the mid-1950s! When FBO Pictures was succeeded by RKO Radio, The Little Savage was added to RKO's release schedule for the 1928-29 season.
