Storyline

Ace Brockway is trying to drive Matt Carter out of business by having Indians attack his trading posts. Steve Blake arrives and gets appointed Deputy to the inept Marshal Smiley Burnette. First he foils Brockway's attempt to supply rifles to the Indians. Then he has the Editor print that Carter has $20,000 in his safe. He figures Brockway will make an attempt to get it and the Durango Kid will be ready. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Quotes

[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!

Totally unimaginative
8 November 2001 | by (Dunstable, Ma) – See all my reviews

I have seen several Durango Kid westerns over the past few months on the Western Channel and they are usually somewhat entertaining with good writing and with a few twists. If this had been the first one that I had ever seen I would have never bothered to see any others. The plot was like a child's western and it lead up to nothing. What did not help was the unusually poor print quality. I wish I could have that hour of my life back.
