Did You Know?


When the Durango Kid shot the outlaw guarding the rifles in the stagecoach, he was chasing it from behind and the man in the stagecoach was sitting with his back to the rear of the coach. When he was shot, the man clutched his chest, so not only did Durango hit him in the chest from behind, but the bullet would have had to make a ninety degree left turn into the stagecoach.

[first lines]
Ace Brockway: Well, Buckshot, how'd it go?
Buckshot Thomas: How'd it go? How'd you expect it would go with me handlin' the deal? Those redskins wiped out that whole trading post!
Ace Brockway: That makes three. Let's see, there's two more to go. Why Matt Carter won't have a dollar to his name inside of a month!

Waa Waa Waa I want my hour back
12 June 2009 | by (Hamilton OHIO) – See all my reviews

If you had seen as many Durango Kid westerns as you said you did, you should have realized that these were designed for kids some sixty years ago. Barry Shipman who wrote several of the screenplays admitted that they were written to a formula and as such the plots did tend to become a bit stereotyped. Frankly, we didn't care. We were there for a afternoon of fun and excitement where we could scream and yell to our hearts content without too much adult supervision. Obviously if you had been in the audience as an adult, we would have thought it was a little strange. The reason that the print quality is so bad is that Columbia cranked these things out on a budget. They were not meant to last several decades and in fact, many have disintegrated through the years because of poor storage. What I can't understand is if you were bored by the film, why didn't you turn it off. That way, you could have spent the rest of your hour more constructively. Incidentally, Charles Starrett hails from Athol, Massachusetts, whose family owned a machine tool business.
