Entertaining Durango kid western
22 July 2020 | by coltras35See all my reviews

Another enjoyable western starring Charles Starrett who this time is looking to clear his father's name and help the stage line fend off the robbers. Simple yet fun western with some twists and a face exploding powder that gives the robbers a surprise.
