Storyline

In the 19th and last of the PRC "Billy the Kid" series (first six with Bob Steele and last 13 with Buster Crabbe), a feud develops between the settlers and the railroad detectives in Red Rock Valley. Clem Barstow sends for Billy the Kid and Fuzzy Jones to help. Buster suspects that Ward Tragg, chief of the railroad detectives, and Luther Sharp, land agent for the Western Railroad Company, are defrauding the settlers without the knowledge or sanction of the company. Billy and the settlers rustle off cattle, which have been illegally confiscated by Tragg and his men, in order to raise money for Barstow to bid on a ranch which Sharp is illegally auctioning off. Billy discovers that the purchase price on the deed has been altered and Barstow writes the company to send a man to investigate. When Tragg learns about this, he makes plans to kidnap the railroad official. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Decent but not there best work.
15 July 2009 | by legion-of-angelsSee all my reviews

Overall I didn't think it was too bad, but it didn't seem to have that piece of their typical episodes that kept me interested for that long. Different is good of course, and it's good for the movies they did, but I liked some of there other movies better.

Billy the Kid is always the good guy by the way, unlike the newer Young Gun movies of the 90s where he is portrayed as an anti-hero. Most of the time in all his movies the Sheriff is after him but always Billy is wrongly accused.

I think I like some of the camera work in this the best, showing some different riding scenes for once, but also using a lot of what looks like the same riding scenes in each movie. Fuzzy plays his typical role of the sort of clueless sidekick with Billy calling the shots. But Fuzzy makes up for this with some comic work.

Not a bad movie, but not one of there best.
