Start of the Durango Kid series
29 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Back in 1940 Charles Starrett first starred as the Durango Kid. It took five years for him to repeat the role, but Harry Cohn must have seen something he liked because Charles Starrett was brought back to star in several more Durango Kid films for Columbia from 1945 to 1952 when the B western cowboys were moved to television.

Durango always had a different Clark Kent name and profession. But in his Durango mode he wore a black horse with a mask. In this film he's an outlaw busy foiling the plans of a gang of outlaws as he gathers evidence that clears his father of old crime attributed to him and saves a stagecoach line from the grasp of your friendly villain.

Starrett was a good cowboy hero, he sat the saddle well and was never romantic with the heroine.

Return Of The Durango Kid is a good one to get acquainted with this series.
