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. And yet, hero Tim Holt jumps from a 2nd story window, knocks her from her horse, and socks her in the face, unaware that she's a woman. See more »

Who were those masked men ?? .......
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tim Holt and his Irish-Mexican sidekick are in top-notch form in this superior western from the late 1940's. Tim & Chito find themselves involved in a confrontation with masked raiders terrorizing the honest citizenry. With cool determination they soon learn that things are not what they seem to be .......

This film boasts a good script and plenty of action The casting is great, with a plum role for future Lone Ranger Clayton Moore. Richard Martin, as Chito, was one of the all-time best sidekicks ! Tim Holt was easily the best actor to star in B-westerns.

I highly recommend this one. Good acting and a good storyline, this one is a must see.
