Fort Savage Raiders is another entry in Charles Starrett's "Durango Kid" western series. Starrett once again does double duty as a peacekeeper named Steve (this time his last name is Drake) and as masked avenger Durango. The heavy of the piece is escaped military prisoner Craydon (John Dehner) who, with several other fugitives from justice, forms an army of terrorists. After dozens of attacks on peaceful communities, Craydon is targeted for elimination by the authorities. Steve Drake is assigned to put an end to Craydon's activities. Why he needs to adopt the disguise of the Durango Kid to pull this off is a mystery left unsolved by screenwriter Barry Shipman (who later went on to such prestige westerns as Republic's Stranger at My Door).
