Action Packed Poverty Row Western
5 August 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Billy The Kid In Texas, the second of six Billy The Kid movies starring Bob Steele, is a truly action packed P.R.C. programmer that I recommend to fans of the genre.

In this Billy wasn't a murderer at all but a framed man running from the law and doing good deeds much like The Fugitive decades later. The plot has Billy and his sidekick Fuzzy teaming up with Billy's brother to stop a group of bullying stickup men from robbing coaches.

Steele plays Billy with a macho demeanor and without much emotion in contrast to the squeaky clean Roy Rodgers, Gene Autry, and Tex Ritter, probably the only anti-hero of the nineteen-forties!

There's lots of blazing six-guns and rowdy fights along with a lightning fast pace that make this more entertaining than the average poverty row production.
