Charles Starrett returns as The Durango Kid in Columbia's El Dorado Pass. It all begins when Durango, in his everyday guise of Steve Clanton, is falsely accused of robbing a stagecoach. The genuine criminal is not only a thief but a coin collector, searching for a valuable specimen by staging holdups. Future Marcus Welby co-star Elena Verdugo adds spice to the proceedings as the peppery robbery victim, while Smiley Burnette handles the comedy and Shorty Thompson and his Saddle Rockin' Rhythm provide the musical interludes. Some of Charles Starrett's more spectacular stunts were performed by an uncredited Jock Mahoney.
