Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

Ken Maynard's fourth film under his 1929 contract with Universal came complete with a music score and sound effects, but no dialogue scenes. Maynard played the title role, a cowboy who, to save the spread of beleaguered homesteader Colonel Lee (Charles Clary), rides the magnificent horse Tarzan to win the Big Race. Wanting the Lee spread for themselves, Martin Brierson (James Farley) and his outlaw brother (Paul Hurst) injure the Lee horses, and Colonel Lee's final chance to reclaim his property lies in the hands of Lucky Larkin. Maynard's frequent collaborator from his days at First National, screenwriter Marion Jackson, continued to supply the star stories long on furious action and excitement.
