Durango tracks down a band of desperadoes ....
This Durango Kid film has something for everyone. In this action-packed sagebrush saga, Durango and Smiley are on the trail of Army stockade escapees. Along the way, the 2 heroes encounter an embittered scalawag who blames the Army for the loss of his beloved son !
Charles Starrett and Smiley Burnette were outstanding in this series entry. Starrett was always believably heroic, no matter what the script might call for. Smiley was well-rounded in more ways than one --- combining comedy, music and action equally well.
As an added bonus, genre veteran John Dehner appears here as the villain with the chip on his shoulder. This was a fun, fast-moving matinée classic !
