Storyline

Steve Gordon, alias 'The Durango Kid,' hired to be a Deputy, takes over as Sheriff in place of the one who has been killed because he was getting to close to a swindling scheme engineered by a gang in order to bilk the local ranchers out of their property and cash. The scheme involves salting the local mines with industrial diamonds, and is going very smoothly as none of the ranchers have much knowledge of geology and are scrambling over each other to invest their savings in the worthless mines. Steve shows a lot of incompetence, while his alter-ego, The Durango Kid, is busily cleaning up the gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Trivia

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.
