Law West Of The Pecos By Sunset
23 June 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Though the plot is a bit incredulous and you can't really believe that white hat hero Sunset Carson can pull off an undercover assignment, Alias Billy The Kid does pack a bit of action in its short running time of 54 minutes.

Carson is a Texas Ranger assigned to bring some law west of the Pecos River and that means bringing in the Marshall gang. The leader has been killed, but the gang is operating now under the direction of Peggy Stewart the former leader's daughter.

Of course the real villain is old standby Roy Barcroft a cattle buyer, in cahoots with two banker brothers, Tom Chatterton and Stanley Price. Naturally Stewart is thrilled to have the famous Billy the Kid riding with her crowd, who wouldn't in the outlaw trade. Little does she know that it's Carson with a very famous alias.

Sunset Carson was one of Herbert J. Yates's stable of cowboy heroes for Republic Pictures. If this one is typical of his, they're not as good as Roy Rogers or Gene Autry who was quitting Republic around this time and Sunset didn't sing. He certainly looked and talked the part though.
