Storyline

Bandit Pop Ryland and his two sons, Clint and Dave, are planning their biggest job; the printing and distribution of territorial bonds. The elder Ryland contracts a hired gunman, McCall, to dispose of his stepson, Tommy, who knows what his step-family members are up to. The Durango Kid captures McCall, takes the letter and presents himself, Steve Lacey, as the hired killer. He stages a fake killing, and discovers the Ryland's scheme. Cling ambushes Durango and is killed in a gunfight, and Durango also shoots McCall who has made an escape. Cash-Register salesman Smiley Burnette aids Steve/Durango in rounding up the remaining villains. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Two Durangos are better than one !
25 August 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

In this 1947 cowboy programmer , Charles Starrett returns in his role as the black-masked Durango Kid. The great Smiley Burnette is along again to help Durango bust up a counterfeiting ring in his usual, commanding way.

Along the way, a villain's step-son joins forces with the Kid, even masquerading as him to fool the no good thieving ruffians ! Burnette is outstanding as the sidekick, and the Cass County Boys are in fine form with their musical numbers.

The Durango Kid films are always enjoyable and I found this one very interesting. It was a good mix of action , humor and music. This one should appeal to all genre fans.
