Will the real Billy stand up and take responsibility?
16 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Billy The Kid and his intrepid sidekicks Al St. John and Dave O'Brien start the film in a real pickle, in less than a day they're to be hung at sunrise. But a miracle happens, a shooting fracas starts, their guns are tossed through a window, the key as well, and horses left outside. Now who could be such a guardian angel?

Well it ain't no angel. It's Glenn Strange who is the local outlaw boss and three of his guys dress like Buster Crabbe, St. John, and O'Brien. And if they're dead or locked up indefinitely, that part of Strange's action is closed down indefinitely.

It's a devil's choice for Strange because when our three heroes get out they set to find out who's been framing them and you know the result won't be good for the bad guy.

The most important leading lady that Crabbe ever had is in this film in the series. Anne Jeffreys is the sister of the sheriff of an outlaw town who Crabbe saves and she's grateful. Of course her fame came later in television as Marion Kerby in Topper.

Definitely one of the better of the Billy The Kid series.
