Storyline

Jim Stewart (Charles Starrett) comes to Mesa City and buys a ranch from publisher Matt Edwards (Weldon Heyburn), who is confined to a wheelchair. The area is terrorized by an outlaw gang known as "The Phantoms." When Jim's cattle herd is rustled and his ranch foreman, Pop Evans (John Elliott), killed, he takes an active hand against the gang in his guise as the Durango Kid. He first suspects rancher Tex Harding (Tex Harding) as being behind the gang, but changes his mind when he meets Harding's pretty sister, Kitty (Jean Stevens).

Personal connection to movie

My Father was one of the musicians in Al Trace's band, "Silly Symphonists". Though only 9 years old at the time, I still remember spending the Summer of 1944, while they made this film and "Rustlers of the Badlands". It was quite an adventure, visiting the set on the Columbia "ranch" as the location was called, where the Western set was. I have photos of me with Charles Starret and others. And what an education it was for a kid; visiting the sites of LA, travelling on the Twentieth Century Limited from NY to Chicago and the Sante Fe Super chief from Chicago to LA. I can even remember the man in the compartment next door, pointing out the trickle of water that he identified as the LA River, as we pulled into town. Would you please tell me if its available anywhere on VCR or DVD? Thank you.
