Joan Forsythe (Molly Malone) arrives in the town of Cache D'Orr, near the Canadian border, to find and claim an inheritance that was left by her late father. Furthermore, in order to find the clue to the fortune in gold, in a hidden mine, she must make contact with a Native American, Black Eagle (Jay J. Bryan). Once in Cache D'Orr, she crosses paths with Wynne Kendall (Maurice B. "Lefty" Flynn), an upper-class ne'er-do-well trying to make good in the eyes of his wealthy uncle, who is newly arrived in the wilderness, his identity a secret, trying to find out why the furs received at the trading post owned by his uncle's company have been dropping for the past couple of years. This puts him on a collision course with Ewart Garth (Joe Bonomo), the brutal and corrupt manager of the trading post. But he and Joan end up with parallel and conflicting interests, as he has posted a bounty for the head of White Fury, the magnificent stallion that leads a herd of wild horses (and recently ran off with Garth's prize brood mare); and White Fury also carries the clue to the location of Joan's legacy. Can the righteous and plucky but genteel Joan and the upright Wynne overcome the brutal Garth, even with the help of Black Eagle, and save the stallion and the herd? Originally released as a serial, The Golden Stallion had enough characters and good enough acting to hold audiences' interest for ten episodes. It was co-authored by future director/producer William A. Berke, whose career lasted another 30 years, and was among the better late silent serial produced by renowned Poverty Row mogul Nat Levine.
