| Nice little serial for fans of classic western heroes
The Painted Stallion is a nice, if somewhat short chapterplay. It's got a lot going for it...Ray Corrigan, Hoot Gibson, Jack Perrinb(as Davy Crockett(, Duncan Renaldo (in a limited though slimy villain role), Hal Taliaferro (as Jim Bowie)...and a lot of great action scenes.

My only real complaint about this serial is that there is way too much reuse of footage...in fact one sequence is repeated word-for-word in two separate chapters. There are a couple of canyon ambushes that feature the same people falling to their dooms in each ambush. I know that they hafta do what they hafta do to cut costs...but that is a tad ridiculous.

Other than that, this is a really enjoyable serial, especially for a western serial. I'm a fan of the old b-westerns but western serials tend to drag on interminably at times. This one was fast paced and a joy to watch.
