Bob Steele got his turn to play Billy the Kid for Producer's Releasing Corporation in Billy The Kid's Range War. It's yet another western in the Hollywood tradition of taking a well known western character and putting them in a plot that would have nothing to do with their lives. In this case, the title is even wrong because there is nary a cow to be sighted in a picture where there is no range war.

What there is in this horse opera is Rex Lease is going around dressing like Bob Steele, riding a horse like Bob Steele's to make everyone think he's Bob Steele while he commits all kinds of crimes including murder. Of course the real Billy wants to get to the bottom of this, especially after he's accused of murdering Joan Barclay's father.

Al St. John is in his usual sidekick role and Carleton Young who later graced many a John Ford film plays friend Pat Garrett in all, but name.

Nothing too terribly special here, Billy The Kid's Range War which was not didn't even have the production values of the great B cowboy studio Republic.
