3 Amigos Vs. 3 Banditos
3 January 2020 | by frank4122See all my reviews

Interesting storyline headed by the one and only Buster Crabbe with his trio chasing down their evil doppelgangers in a race to the finish. A stellar cast of great western actors set this movie in motion from the get go. Al St. John had some great scenes and good comic relief as usual. None other than Glenn Strange headed the band of outlaws and adeptly kept the tension high throughout. He had the help of a skillful band of henchman which included many great western names. I wish we could've seen more of Anne Jeffreys, but she was stunning in the scenes she was in. Billy The Kid Trapped breaks out to a wonderful adventure.
