Which Way Did They Go, George?
18 October 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good B western. The most successful outlaws in Texas have been disappearing with their loot, despite the best efforts of the Texas Rangers and the Mexican Federales. It's up to Texas Ranger Steve Carson to go underground to trace these disappearing bad men.

All the elements work in this Durango Kid movie. It's a bit shorter than usual, timing in at 54 minutes, but there's very little bloat. The comedy bits with Smiley Burnette work, the songs are good and the camera-work of Fayte M. Browne is excellent. The acting is better than usual, with John Dehner and Clayton Moore in major roles.This is a good movie to show to people who are not familiar with the series.
