This is the «eeond of the series of hifih class westerns, which the popular star is making for Grand National, produced by M. H. Hoffman under the Condor brand, the first of which was "Boots of Destiny," and Ken demonstrates again that he can ride and net with the best of them .while his personality carries the call of the great outdoors to his audience. The story of "Trailing Trouble" starts with a stage-coach hold-up and keeps a fast pace throughout the entire production. The bandit gets away with Ken's new hat, and thereafter Ken is mistaken for him because of the swap of headgear. This mistake in identity is an aid to Ken on various occasions. He collects money for stray cows from a tough rancher, who thinks he is the desperate bandit, and helps in straightening out the range rights for the heroine, his boss, who owns the Bar X Ranch. The fact that Ken is wearing the bandit's hat lends to all kinds of I amusing and amazing incidents, for everywhere ho goes he is mistaken for the notorious bad man. Even his pretty mistress, the suxeraine of the Bar X Ranch, takes a shot at him and sends him on a mission from svhich she believes he will come back full of bullet holes. But here the bandit's hat serves as a protection, and, instead, he brings her back the money for her lost steers, which she never had hoped to get. Eventually, however, Ken's real identity is discovered and in the ensuing buttle, Ken proves himself to be a belter man than the much feared bandit, captures him and turns him over to the sheriff, besides getting buck his much-prized hut. The- film is brimful of swift action and surprises and the many admirers of Ken Maynard and his equine pal, Tarzan, will find it screen fare that is 100 per cent entertainment. Playing opposite Ken in the principal feminine role is Lona Andre, as Patience Blair, owner of the Bar X Ranch and Ken's pulchritudinous boss. Roger Williams plays the villain. Arthur Rosson directed "Trailing Trouble" from an original screenplay by Philip Graham White, and both deserve credit for a workmanly job.
