| A different Kid with a white hat, in the first and probably the best
After being kind of disillusioned with the Durango Kid films I saw, back from my childhood in the fifties, it was quite a thrill to see this one, the first, made in 1940. Here in Brazil, the Kid was more known in the comic book stories, but whenever I had a chance I would see a film, and he was my favorite hero. But as time went by I would neither enjoy Smiley Burnette, nor the plots that seemed too recurrent and obvious. But in "The Durango Kid" everything works better. The plot is elementary, but exciting, the Sons of the Pioneers, are better than ever, the songs are good. Charles Starrett has some ironic dialogues with the bad guy, Ballard Kenneth MacDonald) which show what a good actor he was. And the Kid wears a white hat! In my opinion, the best of the Durango Kid's movies.
