At the most notorious club in the United States, the club's owner is shot to death. Young club jockey Larry Sturgis (Darrow) is falsely accused and convicted of the crime, due only to his bad reputation. Having suffered ten years on a chain gang in prison, a freak accident allows Larry to fake his death and escape. Larry heads to the gilded world of Monte Carlo, where the real killer is, a man named James Dagger, known for his bank robberies and compusive gambling. Larry manages to gain help in his investigation to clear his name from local police Inspector Ned Gunby. The two become involved in deadly adventures, including a daring escape by leaping off a train crossing a bridge. An exciting adventure thriller in the style of Alfred Hitchcock.
Don't let the corny sounding title fool you. this is an outstanding Maynard outing, one that truly shows his full, natural western charisma. Wild horses are being rounded up and exterminated (we're talking dogfood here). One horse in particular seems to be responsible for leading off many ranch horses.
Ken Maynard's exceptionally intelligent horse, Tarzan the Wonder Horse, is the star of this western about evil cowboy Steve Frazer (Welch) who gathers horses for slaughter, whose meat is sold to pet food manufacturers. The wild horse Tarzan frees the doomed horses from their corrals, and Frazer convinces the Sheriff that Tarzan is a threat and can be shot on sight. Local cowboy Ken Benson (Maynard) and rancher Pat Riley (Kennedy) work together to clear Tarzan's good name and put Frazier behind bars for his evil deeds.
