Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Produced by Poverty Row company Truart and directed by comedian Billy Bletcher, this low-budget outdoors melodrama headlined the husband-and-wife team of Art Acord and Louise Lorraine, both formerly of Universal.The real stars of the film, however, were Rex, a dog, and Black Beauty, a horse. Dog and horse belong to Pattie, the "wild girl" of the title (Lorraine), who rejects a proposal from uncouth mountaineer Lige Blew in favor of romancing handsome photographer Billy Woodruff (Acord). Taking umbrage to the girl's decision, Lige frames Pattie's granddad (Andrew Waldron) for murder. The old man is shipped off to jail and Pattie is left in Lige's power. Rex and Black Beauty, however, manage to fetch Billy, who returns just in time to save the girl from a fate worse than death.
