A Run on the bank
21 May 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Buster Crabbe playing the notorious Billy The Kid again in The Kid Rides Again is on a mission to Texas to track down another notorious outlaw who robbed a train and left Billy with the blame. Yet another PRC release where the notorious outlaw is once again blamed with a crime he didn't commit. After a while I wonder if the viewers of this series were asking just what did he do to become the most notorious outlaw in the west.

One thing that was unusual for this film is that the town banker who more often than not is responsible for the local dirty deeds is an honest man and played by Edward Peil. Outlaw Glenn Strange who has gone and diversified from train robbery to cattle rustling wants to take over the mortgage on a property and Peil won't sell out to him. Strange starts a campaign to undermine the confidence in the bank and to a wartime audience who remembered the bank runs of the Depression this would have been a theme that found favor.

Crabbe and sidekick Al St. John deliver the usual goods required for a cowboy hero. Not as much action as in some of the Billy The Kid films for PRC, but a satisfactory conclusion for the front row Saturday matinée kids.
