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

This was the last in the long-running Billy the Kid series of low budget westerns. Buster Crabbe stars again, with his comical, whiskered sidekick Fuzzy St. John. This time, they are summoned to get to the bottom of some shady shenanigans being conducted by nefarious railroad agents.
Buster Crabbe and Fuzzy were a good team, performing the best they could with very limited resources. The script here was adequate, but not very unique. Good cast support is given by Kermit Maynard and the very prolific George Chesboro.
The print quality I saw was very poor, so beware. Fans of western programmers will find this one "okay" .........
