Storyline

Tex Harding (Tex Harding) is framed for a bank robbery and his friend, Steve Williams (Charles Starrett), the newly-appointed sheriff of Cornvallis, is forced to jail him. But he gets off to a bad start when Tex escapes and the outraged citizens are convinced that both Steve and Tex are in league with a band of bank robbers terrorizing the territory. Both men are on the dodge but Steve, using his alter-ego of the Durango Kid, manages to clear both of them. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
