Smoke Lightning is a 1933 American Pre-Code Western film directed by David Howard and written by Sidney D. Mitchell and Gordon Rigby. The film stars George O'Brien, Nell O'Day, Betsy King Ross, Frank Atkinson, Clarence Wilson and Morgan Wallace. It is based on the story "Cañon Walls" by Zane Grey. The film was released on February 17, 1933, by Fox Film Corporation.[1][2][3]


Blake (E. Alyn Warren) commits suicide after Smoke (George O'Brien) wins the Blake ranch in a poker game, and Smoke transfers the ranch to Blake's little daughter (Betsy King Ross). The Sheriff (Morgan Wallace), on the other hand, is after the ranch and has Smoke arrested for the murder of Blake, before bringing in a fake relative to appear as the girl's relative.
