Synopsis by Hal Erickson
RKO Radio's "Zane Grey" western series came to an end with the eighth entry, Wild Horse Mesa. Tim Holtstars as a cowboy who earns his keep by rounding up wild mustangs. When his boss is murdered after selling the horses, our hero and his Irish-Mexican sidekick Chito Rafferty (Richard Martin) try to find out who's responsible. It would spoil the viewer's fun to reveal the identity of the killer, but it can be noted that the film's leading lady is the lissome Nan Leslie. Wild Horse Mesa had been previously filmed in 1925 (with Tim Holt's father Jack), then again in 1933.
