They are warned in time by Ed Dawson (Hansel Warner), but Ed is wounded in the getaway. They get a doctor (John Elliott) to attend to Ed. The latter tells them there is a range war in progress across the border and that he is looking for men to help make a cattle drive to the rail junction. Agreeing to help, they head for the Dawson ranch and run across a Dawson man who has been killed from ambush.

Fun But Average Buster Crabbe Vehicle
15 September 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Barely escaping capture once again, Billy the kid and his sidekick Fuzzy Jones take jobs as cowboys driving cattle to market, ending up in the middle of a range war and dealing with an unscrupulous cattle buyer who uses his men to stampede other people's livestock, offering to round up and buy them at cut-rate prices.

This is a typical episode in Producer's Releasing Corperation's Billy The Kid series, enlivened by some above average horseback riding action scenes and a good stampede sequence.

One great scene has Fuzzy showing off his boxing and shooting skills beating and taunting a traitorous and blustery cowpoke while the other cowboys cheer him on.
