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. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
Weather-beaten western star Harry Carey is consistently better than his material in the cheapie shoot-em-up Aces Wild. Astride his wonder horse Sonny, Cheyenne Harey (Carey) comes to the rescue of heroine Martha (Gertrude Messenger), the owner of a valuable gold mine. The villains try to buy Cheyenne off, but he's not about to be dissuaded from his purpose. Two veterans of Columbia's 2-reel comedy mills show up in important roles: Theodore Lorch as the mustachioed heavy, and second-echelon comic Phil Dunham as a crusading newspaper editor. Also on hand is black comedian Fred Toones, who spent most of his career saddled with the demeaning cognomen "Snowflake." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
