Storyline

In one of the most-used plots of the B-western genre, sometimes officially and sometimes just "borrowed" (see Movie Connections), Sunset Carson (Sunset Carson) is a member of an outlaw gang led by Gil Santos Robert Filmer), who have been holding up gold shipments dispatched from Laramie City. Sunset rebels when the gang leaves old Jeff Winters (Hank Patterson) to die alone after he has been wounded in a hold-up gun fight. Sunset and Jeff break with the gang and begin operating on their own, or plan to. On their first attempt, they rout Santos and his gang, and Sally Stoner (Marie Harom'), daughter of Laramie City Sheriff Frank Stoner (Edmund Cobb), assumes they are honest citizens who just saved the gold shipment. She takes Jeff to a doctor and Sunset is made a deputy sheriff. Shortly afterwards, Santos and his gang pull a robbery and implicate the innocent Sunset, and the aroused townspeople, convinced they have been double-crossed, are ready to shoot Sunset on sight.

Previous Outlaw Ways
11 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The love of pretty Marie Harmon keeps Sunset Carson from reverting to his previous outlaw ways in The El Paso Kid. Sunset starts out on the wrong side of the law, but no cowboy hero is going to stay outlaw.

Carson was raised by old outlaw Hank Patterson and when Patterson is wounded and treated badly by the rest of the gang, Sunset and he split from the crew. As a little payback they throw a monkey wrench into a planned stagecoach holdup. But Harmon sees them and makes them to be heroes, especially to her father Edmund Cobb who is the sheriff.

The El Paso Kid has seen a pair of previous screen incarnations. I can't believe they're any better or worse than The El Paso Kid. I'm not thinking we'll ever see a fourth remake of the same story.
