Storyline

"The Tioga Kid" is a remake of 1946's "Driftin' Kid" with only slight plot changes - hero Eddie Dean now has an identical twin brother working with the outlaws of stock from the original, all of the songs are recycled, most of the character names are the same, and the main difference is Jennifer Holt is now playing the role that Shirley Patterson had in "Driftin' River" as "Jenny Morgan," while most of the original cast - Dennis Moore, William Fawcett, Lee Bennett - are also here using the same character role names and, in some instances, the same footage. Eddie Dean and sidekick Soapy Jones return some stolen cattle (instead of horses) to Jenny Morgan, and Eddie runs off ranch hand Tucson Brown, who is working with the outlaws, led by Joe Morino, that includes Eddie's (unknown to him) twin Clint Mason/The Tioga Kid. After Jenny sees a wanted poster that makes her think Eddie is the Tioga Kid, Eddie has a hard time before bringing the gang to justice, aided by the change-of-heart ...

As Dean meets Dean
5 March 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

When it's discovered that Texas Ranger Eddie Dean and The Tioga Kid, notorious outlaw are lookalikes, Texas Ranger Captain Terry Frost decides Dean is the guy to investigate some reported horse thieving that The Tioga Kid has been accused of.

Well The Tioga Kid has been besmirched the real horse thieving is headed by Dennis Moore, but that doesn't stop The Tioga Kid from wanting a cut of the action that he's being accused of heading anyway. About this time Dean and sidekick Roscoe Ates arrive and Dean gets to meet Dean and starts reassess the situation and his life in general.

The Tioga Kid, the last PRC film to go before the movie-going public is simply reedited from a previous Dean film Driftin' River. A lot of the same cast members repeated their roles. It didn't get any better with a title change.

My big objections was the outlaw band massacring a cavalry patrol and the whole sequence is repeated. If the Texas Rangers didn't get them, you can be sure the US Cavalry would have as these people don't even bother to disguise themselves in any way. Kind of stupid to do that because there would be no place they could flee to in the USA with that hanging over their heads.

Eddie Dean had a nice singing voice and it's a pity he was not showcased the way those Republic Picture cowboys were.
