Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Throughout his "B"-western series for Ajax Pictures, Harry Carey was consistently better than his material. In Wild Mustang, Carey plays a leathery ex-marshal named Norton. When the scurrilous Utah Evans (Bob Kortman) and his gang embark upon a crime spree, Norton is coaxed out of retirement and back into the saddle. Once the film swings into the "action" mode, it's pretty good; but whenever it reverts to a dialogue sequence, it's sleepy-bye time on the old prairie. Some of the film's better moments belong to Cathryn Johns as a boisterous female sheriff named Ma McClay.
