Kit Carson: Ace Gunman & Cowboy Crimefighter
17 September 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Even though The Adventures of Kit Carson (from the 1950s) was a decidedly low-budget production, I found its half-hour episodes, for the most part, to be very entertaining, well-produced and, often-times, quite amusing.

From my point of view, I thought that actor Bill Williams had just the right sort of masculinity and overall ruggedness needed to be convincing and easily likable as the title character, Kit Carson. In fact, I thought that the uncomplicated Williams made for a truly ideal cowboy-dude.

Filmed in b&w, this solid and nicely-paced TV Western ran for 4 successful seasons (1951-1955).

Each episode featured yet another no-nonsense, action-packed yarn concerning the fearless activities of Kit and his Mexican sidekick/buddy, El Toro, played by Don Diamond.

Together these 2 loyal comrades traveled from town to town throughout the vast American Southwest fighting crime and upholding the law, always certain to win high praise and respect from the ever-grateful citizens.
