Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Columbia's King of the Wild Horses is a remake of the silent Hal Roach western feature of the same name -- and with the same "star," Rex the Wonder Horse, in the lead. Most of the story involves the romantic triangle between rogue stallion Rex, the gorgeous mare Lady, and villainous black steed Marquis. Red Wolf (William Janney), the film's human hero, manages to tame Rex and earn the horse's undying devotion, but not before bad guy Clint Bolling (Wallace MacDonald) does his best to "break" Rex, in every sense of the word. Future Columbia 2-reel comedy stalwarts Dorothy Appleby and Harry Semels play major roles in this offbeat western.
