The Painted Stallion: The Rider of the Stallion
In chapter two of Republic's The Painted Stallion, United States envoy Clark Stuart manages to roll out of the way of the attacking Comanches. The mysterious girl rider (Julia Thayer), meanwhile, saves the wagon train when one of her whistling arrows kills the Comanche chief (Chief Big Tree). As the train continues its journey, Stuart is ambushed by the nasty Bull Smith (Charles King), but is once again saved by the Rider's whistling arrows. Bad weather makes the crossing of a raging river a difficult task that becomes even more so when one of Smith's men, Macklin (Maston Williams), manages to stow away in Elmer's (Lou Fulton) prairie schooner. Stuart, who has taken over the reigns from the stuttering hillbilly, is knocked unconscious and as episode two reaches its conclusion, the wagon slowly sinks. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

The Painted Stallion: Avalanche
Knocked unconscious from the fall and in danger of drowning, Clark Stuart (Ray Corrigan) is rescued by the Mystery Rider (Julia Thayer), who then assigns a mountain lion to guard him while she rides for help on the Stallion. Their plan to kill Stuart having failed, Bull Smith (Charles King) and Macklin (Maston Williams) arrange for a secret accomplice, Oldham (George DeNormand), to lead the wagon train into a trap at Hondo Gap. Suspicious of Oldham's intentions, Stuart arrives too late to prevent Macklin from lighting the fuse to a keg of gunpowder and half the mountainside comes crashing down. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

The Painted Stallion: The Whistling Arrow

In his secret mountain hideaway, Dupray is plotting how to steal the governmental seal that will restore him to power in Santa Fe, unaware that the Rider (Julia Thayer) is watching the entrance to the cave. Alerted by one of her whistling arrows, the wagon train crew catches Topek (Greg Whitespear) and Zamorro (Duncan Renaldo) in the process of breaking into the governor's office but the latter manages to escape. Stuart takes up the chase but walks right into one of Dupray's fiendish traps. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

The Painted Stallion: Trail to Empire
In the opening chapter of Republic's The Painted Stallion, a mysterious Indian girl rider (Julia Thayer) on a beautiful paint uses whistling arrows as warnings of impending attacks by Indians or white outlaws. In Independence, MO, meanwhile, Walter Jamison (Hoot Gibson) is readying the very first wagon train bound for Santa Fe, NM. Along for the ride are Clark Stuart (Ray Corrigan), a United States representative headed for trade negotiations with the new Mexican envoy; Jim Bowie (Hal Taliaferro), the legendary inventor of the knife that bears his name; young Christopher Carson (Sammy McKim), a stowaway and wannabe scout whom Stuart nicknames "Kit"; and hillbilly cousins Oscar (Ed Platt) and Elmer (Lou Fulton). En route, the train is met by Bull Smith (Charles King), an envoy from the soon-to-be deposed Spanish lieutenant governor of New Mexico, Alfredo Dupray (LeRoy Mason), who is planning to sabotage the negotiations by substituting Clark Stuart with one of his own men. While Smith cunningly proposes to guide the train into Santa Fe, Dupray's aide, Zamorro (Duncan Renaldo), incites the Comanches to revolt. In the ensuing melee, Stuart is separated from the train but a whistling arrow from the Rider alerts him to the danger. The warning may have come too late however; thrown from his horse, Stuart finds himself right in the path of the attacking Comanches. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Wollstein, Rovi
