Jim Houston (Buck Jones)resigns from the Texas Rangers so he can cross the border into Mexico and devote all his time to the capture of Shag Smith (Jim Mason) and his bandit gang who have murdered Jim's young brother, Bob (Don Chapman.) Using the alias of the Pecos Kid, a bandit he recently captured, Jim crosses the border with his pal, "Thunder" Rogers (Frank Rice and finds Smith and his gang at a cantina. Smith thinks about inviting Jim/The Pecos Kid with joining his gang but is persuaded not to by his henchman, Dave, (Lou Hicks), who hates Jim because of the latter's success with Tonita ( Lupita Tovar), the cantina dancer. Jim plots to get Smith and his gang to cross the border into Texas in order to arrest them. Written by

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

I watched this movie because I like the simplicity of the older westerns. I also found this plot a little too simple. Even so, the rough-and-tumble action of the movie and the abruptness of the scene edits made it rather amusing.
I think that finding "undercurrents of gay subtext" in this movie is reading far too much into it. As a young man I wrestled with other young men (yes, even shirtless!), engaged in some good natured rump slapping, as athletes often do, and even wore shirts not fully buttoned. But anyone who thinks that any of us had any leanings toward being gay is not the brightest light in the marquee. That's really funny!
