| Previous Outlaw Ways
The love of pretty Marie Harmon keeps Sunset Carson from reverting to his previous outlaw ways in The El Paso Kid. Sunset starts out on the wrong side of the law, but no cowboy hero is going to stay outlaw.

Carson was raised by old outlaw Hank Patterson and when Patterson is wounded and treated badly by the rest of the gang, Sunset and he split from the crew. As a little payback they throw a monkey wrench into a planned stagecoach holdup. But Harmon sees them and makes them to be heroes, especially to her father Edmund Cobb who is the sheriff.

The El Paso Kid has seen a pair of previous screen incarnations. I can't believe they're any better or worse than The El Paso Kid. I'm not thinking we'll ever see a fourth remake of the same story.
