Storyline

Texas Rangers Tim Holt (Tim Holt) and Chito Rafferty (Richard Martin are sent to Wilcox, Texas to investigate the raids on Hoyt Corthell (Frank Wilcox) by a band of masked raiders led by the Diablo Kid. Posing as cowhands, they are stopped and taken to the Trevitt Ranch where they meet Gale Trevitt (Marjorie Lord), her younger brother Artie (Gary Gray) and her Uncle Henry (Houseley Stevenson), father of Trig (Tom Tyler, Matt (Clayton Moore) and Luke (Jay Kirby) , who have taken Tim and Chito captive. Tim is wounded, during a holdup, by Doc Nichols (Charles Arnt) as he is about to capture one of the raiders, actually the Trevitt family led by Gale posing as the Diablo Kid. Tim and Chito eventually learn that all of the local ranchers are being victimized by Corthell, and that Gale and her family are just taking back and returning what has been stolen by the Corthell gang, working with the crooked town Marshal, Barlow (Harry Woods).

Trivia

The audience realizes that the masked outlaw known as the "Diablo Kid" (Marjorie Lord) is a woman the first time they see her because her well-tailored outfit displays her trim figure. Yet hero Tim Holt jumps from a second-story window, knocks her from her horse and socks her in the face, unaware that she's a woman. See more »

The Diablo Kid
23 September 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this film Texas Rangers Tim Holt and Richard Martin are sent to the corrupt town of Wilcox, Texas to stop a mysterious bandit known as The Diablo Kid and the Masked Raiders who aid and abet her in her crime spree.

Said crime spree seems to be directed at banker Frank Wilcox and sheriff Harry Woods. Just the casting of Harry Woods as the sheriff and you already know this sheriff is going to be corrupt. Woods runs the town with a heavy hand and has a no gun ordinance in town. Which seems kind of stupid when the Masked Raiders come into town shooting and rob the bank once again and no one can stop them. Of course there's a compensatory factor that Woods is a bully and likes using the law to push people around.

Tim and Chito in the end get to the bottom of it all and get quite the surprise when the identity of The Diablo Kid is revealed. There's enough action in Masked Raiders to satisfy any B western fan, delivered by Tim Holt, the best of the B west.
