Buster Crabbe Versus Buster Crabbe
11 September 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Framed (he's really innocent in this) outlaw Billy the kid rides into the town of Sage Valley. After saving the Mayor from a beating, he's appointed the new sheriff, tangling with a crooked land swindling casino owner who uses gambler's credit to take away homesteader's property and is actually a front for Kansas Ed, a wanted criminal that happens to be Billy's double and may or may not be his long lost brother!

Another entry in Producers Releasing Corporation's Billy The Kid series, this has the requisite amount of action, gun play, and fast paced heroics (with one really well done fist-fight) that fans of the series would expect.

The real draw here is seeing Buster Crabbe acting opposite himself in a dual role as hero and (for the only time I can think of) villain, with a handful of neat split screen scenes of the two characters interacting with one another.

Overall, this is above average and worth viewing for fans of poverty-row westerns.
