Average B-Western
A mostly average B-Western, "The Tonto Kid" stars Rex Bell as a cowboy with a checkered reputation who finds himself in the middle of a complicated situation. Some of it is routine, but it has its good moments.

Bell's character is trying to foil a grasping lawyer who is intent on getting hold of a potentially valuable property, and who uses a pretty good variety of underhanded schemes in his attempt. The plot is not bad for a low-budget movie. While it has some predictable turns, it has a couple of interesting features as well along the way.

Bell lends a little bit of energy to the title role, but as a whole the rest of the cast and characters are routine. It's watchable as long as you are used to Westerns of the era, but don't expect too much more than that.
