There's a good showdown scene about halfway through but other than that there's nothing much else to recommend about The Kid Rides Again. There isn't as much action in this as there was in previous entries, the female lead is uninteresting and the heavies just aren't heavy enough in this one, with the exception of the always great Glenn Strange. Even Fuzzy St. John's usually amusing comic relief is weak this time around, featuring one too many "sitting on nails" jokes.
In this Billy the kid tangles with some bank-robbing baddies in a town fed up with outlaws, even framed ones such as himself.
The series was beginning to wear a bit thin by 1943. Producers Releasing Corperation, probably tired of celebrating a real-life killer, changed the main character to Billy Carson and re-started the series without the Billy The Kid moniker later that year.
