Review by Hans J. Wollstein

Aside from the presence of Rita Hayworth, Hit the Saddle is hardly earthshaking, what with a plot told many times before -- a wild stallion falsely accused of murder -- and a villain, whose identity should be obvious to anyone who has ever seen a Hollywood sagebrush tale. But Republic Pictures' original Mesqueteers -- Robert Livingston, Ray "Crash" Corrigan and Max Terhune -- are so engaging and the production so well assembled that a good time should be had by all. Add to that a surprisingly serious discussion about the rights of animals and you have more interesting B-Westerns of its day.
