review for The Lone Avenger on AllMovie

The Lone Avenger (1933)
by Hans J. Wollstein review

Ken Maynard's famous horse Tarzan performs his usual tricks in The Lone Avenger -- including untying his master when Ken is in danger of being lynched -- and villain Al Bridge is his snarling self as well. The real surprise here is inveterate Bad Guys Charles King and Edward Brady, who, for once, are on the side of the angels as roughhewn but good-natured brothers Nip and Tuck Hawkes. Their names alone ought to have insured them future appearances in KBS Westerns but harried producer E.W. Hammons, who probably had his hands full handling the often temperamental Maynard, failed to follow up a promising bit of teamwork.
