Storyline

In the 19th and last of the PRC "Billy the Kid" series (first six with Bob Steele and last 13 with Buster Crabbe), a feud develops between the settlers and the railroad detectives in Red Rock Valley. Clem Barstow sends for Billy the Kid and Fuzzy Jones to help. Buster suspects that Ward Tragg, chief of the railroad detectives, and Luther Sharp, land agent for the Western Railroad Company, are defrauding the settlers without the knowledge or sanction of the company. Billy and the settlers rustle off cattle, which have been illegally confiscated by Tragg and his men, in order to raise money for Barstow to bid on a ranch which Sharp is illegally auctioning off. Billy discovers that the purchase price on the deed has been altered and Barstow writes the company to send a man to investigate. When Tragg learns about this, he makes plans to kidnap the railroad official. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pilot light barely on
11 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Blazing Frontier will hardly stir a flame of interest in you. Only dedicated fans of the Billy The Kid series will think much of this one, the pilot light is barely on.

Buster Crabbe and Fuzzy St. John are sent for by Milton Kibbee who is a lawyer and had gotten them off in court once. Now Kibbee is representing some small ranchers who are getting ripped off by the railroad they've given right of way to.

A lot of the appeal in this series is the comedy of Al St. John, but way too much reliance is placed on it here. Part of the scam is to make the bad guys believe St. John is a dangerous killer. Buster Crabbe couldn't even keep a straight face with this one. I don't know anyone who could. The comedy that's supposed to be here sinks like Nolan Ryan's slider.

Just too incredibly dumb to be funny.
