Storyline

Old Mike Brady built Brady Town and was a leader, but a bullet from an unknown assailant has ended his life. When the will is read, it leaves the bulk of the property to Kirk, the gambling son of Mike. This upsets Sam, the hard working son, but not gambler Full House who always beats Kirk at cards. But even the Sheriff is suspicious of the will, but he needs proof and the Durango Kid will find the proof. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

This Durango Kid feature looks like it might have been put together out of snips from other movies, with a couple of purpose-shot scenes to make it hold together. Was it Selznick or Thalberg who said "Good movies aren't made -- they're remade in the editing room"? Starrett spent ten years in the top Western star polls, and his movies were undoubtedly profitable, but while other B western stars like John Wayne and Randolph Scott kept ahead of inflation by moving into the As, Starrett stayed profitable because Columbia seemed to cut his budget.

The best part of this movie are the musical interludes. Smiley Burnette is on tap as a reporter for comic relief, but he tries too hard for my taste.
