Mystery Science Theater 3000: LAST OF THE WILD HORSES
January 5, 2017 2:03 AM - Season 6, Episode 11 - Subscribe

"RIDIN' HIGH... WILD... and DARING!" "A Big Action Outdoor Spectacle" A flimsy, coincidence-driven plot drives what amounts to a cowboy clearing his name for murder. The last of the Robert L. Lippert-produced movies MST would do! Also, the last MST film with music by Albert Glasser! But both of these endings are overshadowed by the riffing and sketches in this episode, which parody the Star Trek alternate universe "Mirror, Mirror" episode, with two of everyone runnin' around, evil shenanigans afoot, and, for the first host segment at least, Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank are riffing the movie! YouTube (1h32m) Premiered October 15, 1994.

IMDB (1948, 1.9 stars)
"A cowboy must clear himself of a murder he did not commit."
Directed by Robert L. Lippert and Paul Landres. Written by Jack Harvey. Starring James Ellison, Mary Beth Huges and Jane Frazee.

Notes:
It's the end of an era. This is the last movie MST did that was executive produced by the infamous Robert L. Lippert. It's also the last MST movie to have a score arranged by Albert Glasser.

If Frank and Trace in one theater segment aren't enough for you, might I suggest their podcast, Movie Sign With The Mads?

This is one of my favorites. It's worth it just for the agonizer gag.

Ilana should get a kick out of this one. TOS'd to the max.

I'M SO EXCITED

I could even send a link to the video for my parody "Since U Met Khan" for pre or post roll. But it's probably for the best if I don't. (I don't have a Mirrorverse song yet.)

(My husband and I were watching an episode of Voyager last night for which the Netflix episode description ended with the words "Space-Age Junkyard." We simultaneously turned to each other and sang, a la Baba O'Riley's "teenage wasteland," "Space-Age Junkyard! Only space-age junkyard!" I 100% blame MST3K and Teenage Caveman for this.)
