Storyline

Wolf Valley is in the throes of a land-grab engineered by Barlow and Taylor. The fight against them is led by Billy Carson, who is framed on a murder charge which the outlaws believe will drive him out of the territory. But instead of running, Billy surrenders and stands trial before Judge Ryan, a square shooter. After weighing the evidence, Ryan finds Bill not guilty but sentences Billy to jail for 30 days for disturbing the peace because the Judge thinks that is the only way to save Billy from the vengeance of Barlow and Taylor. But, without Billy's leadership, the settlers are helpless and ranches are burned, cattle rustled, the town is shot up, the bank robbed and the mining claim owned by Billy and Fuzzy Jones is confiscated. Ryan releases Billy who puts on a fake mustache, gets a sombrero and poses as a Mexican cattle-buyer in order to work his way into the gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Great character actors
18 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Bargain basement stuff, but lifted to a very enjoyable level by some lovely character acting. Charlie King is a quintessential 'heavy'; Fuzzy doesn't do much in this one, but Buster Crabbe excels himself when he goes undercover in the shape of a Mexican bandit leader, and plays it with an easy charm that contrasts with his rather bland 'Billy Carson' persona. The highlight though is the stand-out performance of Emmett Lynn as the befuddled judge - it's what classic Hollywood character acting is all about, and his bizarre cameo is touched with genius. Just one pedantic note: this is not a 'Billy the Kid' offering - it is the second film in the follow-on 'Billy Carson' series.
