A typical 40's type Western with good singing
18 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie mainly because my father is in it. He had a small bit part but his main role was as the singing voice for Tex Harding. He sings for Tex in all the Durango Kid movies. I find Tex to be a little "wooden" as an actor but his singing voice is great! Charles Starrett is a very good actor and I have always liked him. I was on the set of the Durango Kid movies as a child and got an autographed picture of Tex Harding (Unfortunately I no longer have this picture). I would recommend this movie to those who like Westerns. It has some humor and take a good look at Tex Harding's horse. I never saw a horse with such beautiful markings. And of course I would recommend this movie to those who can appreciate a good baritone singing voice, the voice of James T."Bud" Nelson. A listing of my father's movies is available on this site also.
