Outlaws of the Rockies is the fourth of Columbia's revitalized "Durango Kid" series. Charles Starrett is back in the saddle as the masked do-gooder Durango, aka easygoing sheriff Steve Williams. Accused of being a member of an outlaw gang, Williams is forced to don his Durango disguise to bring the actual criminals to justice. He also helps his pal Tex Harding (played by real-life cowboy crooner Tex Harding) escape from jail. A goodly portion of the film's footage is given over to the singing of Harding and his fellow sagebrush vocalist Spade Cooley. Outlaws of the Rockies was the first of 38 "Durango Kid" entries to be directed by Ray Nazarro.
