The story begins with Stony winning in the rodeo. But the owners are NOT thrilled because the crowd was tiny and they are losing money. They come up with an idea....to capture the famous wild horse, Cyclone, and feature it in their rodeos. Stony agrees to do it for them and he's paid $1000 for the horse. However, he comes to regret it. Why? Because the woman who helped to make the horse famous insists he should be allowed to run wild. And, since Stony is falling for her, he wants to make her happy. So, at the next rodeo, he takes the challenge to successfully ride this beast...and wins. The prize is $2000....or the horse. And, Stony oddly chooses the horse! He plans to let it free...but soon the rodeo owners send goons to try to steal the horse! This really made little sense, as the crowd saw him win the horse....and the rodeo owners couldn't exactly feature a stolen horse in their shows!
Although Stony did all this to impress the lady, it's a problem as it turns out Tucson is ALSO in love with her. When Stony finds out, he runs off on his own to Mexico...in order to let his friend have the girl. Of course, NO ONE BOTHERED TO ASK THE LADY WHO SHE WANTED...if anyone! So what's next? See the film....and hear Roy sing a few songs.
Apart from Rogers, the film is pretty typical and features the most famous lineup of the Mesquiteers, Ray Corrigan, Bob Livingston and Max Terhune....and Terhune's dummy, Elmer. I have no idea who and why they thought having a western cowboy running about doing ventriloquism was a good thing...but Elmer appeared in many of the films in this series. Overall, a decent and entertaining film...even with dopey old Elmer!
