Ed Wood's Western Serial Attempt, Not Bad
27 November 2004 | by (Broken Arrow, OK) – See all my reviews

Crossroad Avenger is actually very good, with a good story line, decent acting by some longtime bit part actors who were nearing the end of their careers. I even found the name "Tucson Kid" very original, especially when given to a insurance investigator. Crossroad Avenger has a good story line, logical plot and bad guys with black hats, our hero wears a white hat in keeping with the trend. Ed Wood should have gotten a break on this one with the networks, it just might have made it on TV given a slightly bigger budget.

This is actually as good as some other shows that made it on TV in the early 1950's and better than some cowboy movies of the era. It's worth a tasty beverage and some munchies.
