Storyline

Larson cheats Burke at cards, has him sign over the deed to his ranch disguised as an IOU, and then kills him in a supposedly fair gunfight. This sends Bill Denton into action and he robs Larson and his henchman Gabby until he has enough money to buy back the ranch. When Larson realizes he received his own money back, both Larson and his men and the Marshal go after Denton. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

The Montana Kid finds young Andy Shuford and Doris Hill arriving in Montana to settle their with relatives, Hill with her uncle the marshal Gordon DeMain and Andy with his father, rancher John Elliott.

Anticipating his son's arrival, Elliott goes out on a toot and it's an inebriated Elliott who gets into a card game where villain William Thorne cheats him out his ranch and then shoots him. Just as the stagecoach is arriving with Shuford. With nowhere else to go, young Andy comes under the protection of Bill Cody.

Of course cowboy hero Cody then proceeds on his own scheme to right the wrongs of the situation. More I cannot say without revealing too much of this western.

Made for Monogram, this is one of the better Cody westerns from the Thirties, B western action fans will still enjoy this one.
