Hell Fire Austin stars amiable cowboy hero Ken Maynard, as well has his horse, Tarzan the Wonder Horse (originally just named Tarzan, until a lawsuit with Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs). Maynard and Tarzan become embroiled in a championship horseracing feud between rival ranchers. Since Maynard was a trick rider before becoming a movie cowboy, Hell Fire Austin is the perfect platform for his ample abilities. But surrounding the race itself is backstabbing and under the table deals which punctuate this engaging film. Hell Fire Austin revels in the true glory of the Old West: six shooters, stallions, and underhanded plots.
