Storyline

Steve Bolton, a Department of the Interior agent, has given young "Bronc" Masters a lease to 50,000 acres of range land. Several months later "Bronc" discovers a strange notice on the land, warning off trespassers. He thinks that Steve has leased the same land twice, grabs a gun and heads for town, although his level-headed girl friend, Ann Bradford, attempts to stop him. Steve pacifies him, and they both ride out to the range and discover a gang of men, led by "Spud" Henry, rounding up the wild horses. Henry produces a paper, similar to the one Steve gave "Bronc" and signed by the Secretary of the Interior, and Steve, knowing the paper is a forgery, slaps an injunction on the land, forbidding any horses to be rounded up until the matter is cleared. Henry has had a cleaver counterfeiter forge the signature and knows he will be found out, so he orders his men to rustle the horses and run them to the railroad siding for shipment. But the Durango Kid takes a hand. 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.

Durango gets it all sorted out in less than an hour.

Steve Bolton (Charles Starrett), a Department of the Interior agent, has given young "Bronc" Masters (Robert Scott)a lease to 50,000 acres of range land. Several months later "Bronc" discovers a strange notice on the land, warning off trespassers. He thinks that Steve has leased the same land twice, grabs a gun and heads for town, although his level-headed girl friend, Ann Bradford (Nancy Saunders), attempts to stop him. Steve pacifies him, and they both ride out to the range and discover a gang of men, led by "Spud" Henry (Hugh Prosser), rounding up the wild horses.

Henry produces a paper, similar to the one Steve gave "Bronc" and signed by the Secretary of the Interior, and Steve, knowing the paper is a forgery, slaps an injunction on the land, forbidding any horses to be rounded up until the matter is cleared. Henry has had a cleaver counterfeiter forge the signature and knows he will be found out, so he orders his men to rustle the horses and run them to the railroad siding for shipment.

But, too late, as Steve, in his guise as The Durango Kid,is about to take charge of the situation.
