Storyline

Black Bart was a notorious but polite stage robber in 1899 when he was was caught and sentenced to seven years, but he apparently disappeared after serving seven years in prison. Now, ten years later in 1916 someone has adopted Bart's m.o. and is ribbing stagecoaches again but without Bar's good manners and respect for life. This reincarnation of the notorious bandit doesn't have the same respect for human life. The Range Busters are assigned to ferret out the outlaw whoever he is. The only clue is that the old Bart had a penchant for gambling by betting on the number the number three. With their new identity the boys pose as strangers although they immediately become rivals for the affections of Molly Collins, daughter of a reformed alcoholic who wants to deed his in-town property to a new church, but the gang boss impersonating Bart has different plans... for a red-light area of a saloons and gambling halls.

Black Bart Rides Again?
18 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The notorious Black Bart, gentleman outlaw who plied his trade in California of the 1870s looks like he's taken up robbery again this time in Apache Butte, Arizona Territory. The Range Busters, Ray Corrigan, Dusty King, and Max Terhune are called to apprehend the robber.

No one ever knows what happened to the real Black Bart whose real name was Charles Bolles. He disappeared after his parole in 1888 and was never seen or heard from again. So for once a B western had some basis in fact.

As it turns out the real Black Bart is in the area and taking up an entirely different vocation. But he's as concerned as the Range Busters are in apprehending this impostor.

This was a good entry in the Range Busters series, maybe one of their best.
