Buster Crabbe beside himself
6 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Sheriff Of Sage Valley finds Billy the Kid and his two sidekicks Dave O'Brien and Al St. John stopping a holdup and saving the loot, but the sheriff who was riding in the stagecoach with other passengers was killed and the story doesn't quite add up.

Sage Valley has been plagued with an outlaw gang that has many venues of crime including a crooked saloon. With a few fronts it's all ultimately controlled by an outlaw named Kansas Ed. Who is a dead ringer for Buster Crabbe as Billy and could be a long lost brother.

The script is rather clumsy in describing just how these two had not met for many years. But Buster Crabbe who was admittedly no Olivier, Brando, or Tracy acquits himself well in the dual role. The climax fight scene between both of them and the outcome is a heart wringer and above what you get in PRC Poverty Row westerns. Worth checking out.
