Mediocre Entry In P.R.C.'s Billy The Kid Series
8 October 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

In order to clear his name (again), Billy the kid infiltrates a band of ruthless armed robbers and discovers that the gang's leader is actually a female ranch owner.

Falling in love (or about as much in love a Saturday matinée western hero is allowed to with a villain), Billy tries to persuade her to go straight before things get too out of hand.

The truth is there's more chemistry between Billy the kid and Fuzzy Jones than there is between Billy and the girl in this pretty mediocre episode in Producer's Releasing Corporation's long running Billy The Kid Series.

There's too much talk and not enough action or worthwhile story to make this memorable.
