The Tulsa Kid cleans up the town
6 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the Tulsa Kid (Don 'Red' Barry) arrives in town looking for his former mentor Montana Smith (Noah Beery), he witnesses a shooting and quickly finds himself caught up in the middle of a scheme by Dirk Saunders (George Douglas) to steal water rights from Bob Wallace (David Durand) and his sister Mary (Luana Walters). The Kid learns that his old friend Montana is working as a hired gun for Saunders. Soon the two find themselves on opposite sides of the fight.

A former football player, Don 'Red' Barry always brought an athletic action to his movies and The Tulsa Kid is one of the best examples. In this one the Tulsa Kid, having given up his outlaw ways, no longer wears a gun. The use of this plot device gives the Kid the opportunity to use multiple tricks and chicanery throughout the movie to outwit Wallace and his henchmen (Ethan Laidlaw,John Beach and Cactus Mack). But going straight isn't easy and the Kid must decide if he will strap back on the gun belt to stop Wallace and face down his friend Montana.

Good action B-Western.
