| Good Production Values But Trite Script
The Durango Kid is called upon to clean up a town beset by a ruthless gang that goes unmolested due to the town's judge being in their hip pocket.

Bonanza Town is technically well made, fairly fast-paced, with an adequate amount of action, and also features a few good songs courtesy of Smiley Burnette. However, the script is quite tepid and the movie very forgettable.

I've never seen any of The Durango Kid movies before this one, so I'm not sure how it holds up to others in the series. But the fact that this Saturday matinée style B-western was made in 1951 instead of 1941 and the studio was Columbia Pictures and not Producers Releasing Corporation or Monogram Pictures, leads me to believe that this should have been a better overall picture than it ultimately was.
