What do you get when you combine Ray "Crash" Corrigan, Hoot Gibson, and Duncan Renaldo into a twelve-part cliff-hanging Republic oater? You get The Painted Stallion, a 1937 serial based on an idea by Hal E. Evarts, popular author of dozens of Western novels. Scripted by Barry Shipman and Winston Miller and helmed by Alan James, Ray Taylor, and William Whitney, The Painted Stallion also brings in such western legends as Kit Carson, Jim Bowie, and Davy Crockett.
If you are a Saturday matinee kid at heart, as I am, enjoy these twelve bits (three and a half hours worth) of awesome.
