Storyline

Steve Martin (Charles Starrett)is sent to Wild River to recover stolen gold and finds the town is being terrorized by The Hawk (Clayton Moore) and his outlaw gang. The Hawk attempts to murder Sheriff Jack Mahoney (Jock Mahoney) and is captured and jailed. Steve, in his guise as The Durango Kid, helps the Hawk break jail and thus makes contact with the bandit gang. He sends a bungling photographer, Smiley Burnette (Smiley Burnette), to warn the sheriff that the gang plan to rob the express office. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A fun old-fashioned shoot-em-up !
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best loved & most prolific of western movie series were the Durango Kid films. Charles Starrett starred as the black -masked cowboy hero, righting wrongs and fighting injustice in the old west. His regular sidekick was the great Smiley Burnette, finest of the western comedians !

In this fun, action-filled movie, our two heroes are in all sorts of jams, eventually coralling the bad guy & saving the day. Two beloved western series stars are on hand in the great supporting cast. Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger) and Jock Mahoney (Range Rider) are featured in this star-studded B-western !

Enjoy this very entertaining tale of the Durango Kid !!!
