Will the real Deuce Mallory stand up
31 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The title role of The Fargo Kid was played by Tim Holt who after catching Paul Fix cheating in a game of cards on the trail takes his horse and rides into town. But Paul Fix in addition to being a gambler does contract killings on the side and he's taken a contract from assayer Cy Kendall and henchman Ernie Adams to kill Paul Scardon and steal the claim Scardon has.

Scardon doesn't know he's feet away from a rich vein of gold and that's why he has a target on his back. But when Kendall and Adams mistake Holt for the infamous Deuce Mallory that's when the fun starts.

This B western from RKO is laced with some nice comedy and a few forgettable western tunes sung by Ray Whitely and is trio. Holt though he showed he was capable of more always settled back into the comfortable niche of cowboy hero.

That's because he was so good at it as he is in The Fargo Kid.
