No jurisdiction
17 November 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

As Texas Ranger Kip Allen, Charles Starrett has no jurisdiction in New Mexico Territory to go after the outlaws he seeks. But when he's the Durango Kid, Starrett goes anywhere.

Which is what he does in the guise of a prospector going after head outlaw Al Bridge.

Even outlaws are sentimental. Bridge has a sort of favorite charity with old prospector Emmett Lynn. Here a bit of the Lady For A Day plot comes in as Lynn has a granddaughter Pat Parrish coming to town. But even Lynn becomes part of his nefarious schemes and gets killed for it.

Bridge is one of the more recognizable villains in all genres of film, he was a favorite of Preston Sturges. He's a mean one in Both Barrels Blazing, but no match for the Durango Kid.

B western fans especially those who like the Durango Kid series will approve.
