The Denver Kid (1948)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
Though it breaks his heart the father of both the men and the border patrol Emmett Vogan thinks that Cain slew Abel. However Rocky Lane who was Edwards' best friend in the border patrol doesn't believe it and he goes undercover to find the real murderer as The Denver Kid.
The brains behind all of this is an outlaw named Jason Fox known as The Fox and he's quite the megalomaniac. He's turned the border town of Cemetery Ridge into an outlaw haven and he's collecting all sorts of no good varmints to form an army to declare the Republic of The Fox in his area. He has a cheerfully corrupt sheriff played with real relish by George Lloyd.
Aided by pharmacist Eddy Waller, Lane does his western hero thing and makes the Republic of The Fox a stillborn proposition.
Blackjack, the coal black stallion that Lane road in his films was not as well known to the movie-going public as Trigger, but in this film even more than others helped Lane out considerably.
One of the better Rocky Lane features from Republic.
