Brother in a jackpot
21 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Bob Steele takes on the role of Billy The Kid in Billy The Kid In Texas. With his short frame Steele was far more like the real William Bonney than most who played him on the screen. He was quite a bit older and in fact his name isn't even Bonney in this film. He's a Clark.

Whether it was Bob Steele or Buster Crabbe later on, we never see Billy doing any of the outlaw acts that made him an outlaw legend. He and whatever sidekicks he has are always doing good deeds when we see them.

In this episode after he robs a gang who just robbed a payroll and later stands up to the same gang in a saloon, Steele is made sheriff, but later finds his brother involved in the same gang. How to bring them to justice and extricate his brother from the jackpot is the issue Steele faces.

Lots of action cover some plot deficiencies, but fans of the smoking six guns won't mind at all.
