Good Western with Humor and Music
4 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie. I have always thought that Charles Starrett was a very handsome man and a good actor. Tex Harding on the other hand is rather wooden, but he has a beautiful singing voice. However, it is not his voice at all but the voice of my father, James T. "Bud" Nelson, (whose credits can be found on this web site). This is a little known fact but my father sang for Tex Harding in all the Durango Kid movies. When I was 7 years old my father took me to the set of the Durango Kid movies and I met Tex Harding (John Thye)and he gave me an autographed picture.I always knew that my father sang in the movies but I didn't know who he sang for until I started doing some research in 2003 and realized that the man I met when I was 7 years old was the man that my father sang for. Sadly, my father passed away in 1994 and my mother in 2000 so I was not able to ask them questions about how all this came about and if my father sang in any other movies. I would recommend the Durango Kid movies that Tex Harding was in to anyone who would like to hear a smooth baritone voice. Close your eyes and listen.
