Billy The Kid cons the outlaws
21 May 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Buster Crabbe plays the role of Billy The Kid in this western from the PRC studios located on Poverty Row. This film is in the tradition of those B studios take the name of a character from the old west and just using the name to build a wholly fictional story. Here Crabbe gets his share of gunplay, but uses his head more in this one to get a group of outlaws who want to move in on another outlaw who's been exploiting the ranchers and homesteaders. Get them fighting and the good people who want to make the west a civilized place might just take over. Edmond O'Brien describes that process so well in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

Billy has two sidekicks, Al St. John and Dave O'Brien. In fact St. John is fed up with the vagabond life of the outlaw and goes out to the territory following an advertisement circular. He sees what's going on and sends for his erstwhile pals.

A bit more plot than usual makes Billy The Kid Wanted a cut above the usual poverty row oater.
