Buster Crabbe's Debut As Billy The Kid
7 August 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Buster Crabbe takes the reigns from Bob Steele and puts his own spin on the title character in Billy The Kid Wanted, the seventh entry in P.R.C.'s Billy The Kid series.

Once again we're treated to a fast paced, action filled shoot-em-up adventure with with a plot as well worn as an old boot, this time featuring eternal heavy and future Frankenstein monster Glenn Strange (who's always great) as yet another homicidal land swindler out to cheat and bully a group of innocent homesteaders.

As Billy The Kid, Buster Crabbe is likable and certainly more charismatic and better looking than his predecessor, but he lacks the macho posturing that made Bob Steele's portrayal so unique. He's still a great hero, though.

Like most of the poverty row westerns it's not very memorable but it's fun while it lasts.
