The Adventures of Rex and Rinty is the story of Rex and Rinty. The twelve episode serial, distributed by Mascot Pictures in 1935 and directed by Ford Beebe and B. Reeves Eason, begins on the island of Sujan, near the coast of eastern Africa, where the magnificent Arabian stallion Rex is worshiped as a god-horse.
Sujan High Priest Tanaga lets Mitchell and Wheeler, two Americans, see the revered stallion. They then steal Rex and bring him to the United States where he is bought by Crawford, a rich and avaricious polo-playing rancher. Crawford plans to train Rex as a polo horse, but the majestic Rex refuses to cooperate and escapes.
On the run, Rex meets up with Rinty, and together they evade capture by Crawford and his thugs Jones, Anderson, and McDonald.
When their activities catch the attention of another polo-player, Frank Bradley, he befriends Rex and Rinty and takes them back to the island of Sujan.
The devious Crawford follows and convinces the Sujan natives to turn against their god-horse, and they decide to burn Rex as a sacrifice.
