Storyline

Bill Harmon receives a letter from his partner, Dave MacRoy informing him of a rich gold strike in their California mine. Arriving there, Bill learns from elderly miner John Benton that Dave is dead and that he sold the mine at a strangely low price the night before his supposed accidental death. Good-natured and respected physician Doc Ryan shows Bill a check made out to and endorsed by Dave as full payment for the mine. But Doc becomes alarmed at Bill's suspicions and orders his henchmen to get rid of him. Red Synder picks a fight with Bill by insulting Benton's daughter Joan. In the gunfight that follows, Red is killed and through a trick, it is blamed as murder by Bill. He is jailed but escapes and interrupts a meeting between Doc and another secret member of his gang, Trigger Chandler, the town gunsmith. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trail of Kit Carson not a "Rocky" picture
2 December 2007 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

The reviewer who called Trail of Kit Carson a Rocky Lane picture was misinformed. Allan Lane made six features prior to becoming Red Ryder. They did not have any series name. He played a different character in each one. He didn't have a regular sidekick. His horse (although not named in the series) was called Banner. Lane replaced Don Barry in these films, wearing the same type of shirt (black with arrow crescent pockets) and used Wally Vernon, Barry's former sidekick. He also co-starred with Barry's former leading lady, Helen Talbot. When Bill Elliott was promoted to A-Westerns, Herbert Yates saw some footage of Lane and decided that he would be the new Red Ryder. Following that series, he then went into the Rocky Lane series in 1947. He was usually a federal peace officer, rode Blackjack, and Eddy Waller became his sidekick, Nugget Clark. Nugget was usually a ally to help him fight the bad guys, but they never rode together. Often Rocky left town at the end on his own.
