Interesting formula oater
8 February 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I always enjoy watching any film from the Durango Kid series. These simple, one hour, B&W formula westerns provide the good, old fashioned kind of movie entertainment that I enjoyed in the theaters, many years ago. I'm usually not a big fan of music in my westerns but this film featured some good musicians and singers such as Pee Wee King and his band plus Carolina Cotton. However, I never liked Smiley Burnett and, as usual, his songs do nothing except irritate me.

The plot is rather good as a former Texas Ranger decides that he is going to end up with total control of the only road that provides a path into and out of the town. Naturally, he will make it a toll road. The methods that he plans to use are illegal and an old sidekick of his in the Rangers comes to town, becomes the Marshall and has to go up against his old friend. The resolution of the plot is somewhat different than most of these type of movies and is both interesting and satisfying.
