Usual fare for an oater
15 March 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a middling decent and typical 'Durango Kid' B western for Charles Starret, who spent ten years or so near the top of the 'B' western hill. The Durango Kid comes to town and is appointed marshal under his real name and spends his time fighting the baddies, who want to drive out the homesteaders. He spends the rest of the time in the usual mixture of song and gunslinging. Dub Taylor is the comic sidekick and former D.W. Griffith director Lloyd Ingraham has a good role too. The cinematographer, George Meehan, does a decent if unremarkable job, although he has a peculiar affinity for four-shots in this one.

The whole thing looks like it was the basis for Mel Brooks' western burlesque, BLAZING SADDLES.
