The Durango Kid is on which side of the law?

This film starts with a narrator saying that you can tell a person by who his friends are, he might be a good person (the screen shows a bunch of good guys) or a bad person (a lot of bad guys) but what can you say about the Durango Kid who is always alone? (the screen shows the Durango Kid in his white horse). Those Charles Starrett-Durango Kid B westerns used to be the most original and enjoyable of the late forties. They always played with the idea that the Kid could be against the law. Smiley Burnette is the comic side kick who keeps trying to be funny, and really does not achieve it, but he is a likeable guy anyhow. There are some good musical numbers and the director Ray Nazarro made some quite good westerns later on.
