Charles Starrett plays Steve Allan in Columbia's Blazing Trail. Halfway through the proceedings, Starrett dons the familiar mask of the do-gooding Durango Kid, and when ranch-owner Old Mike Brady (Robert Malcolm) is murdered, Steve (Starrett) tries to root out the killer. Several people had pretty good motives, including Brady's envious brothers (Steve Darrell and Steve Pendleton--this film is festooned with Steves!) Before the Durango Kid swings into action, the film pauses for a few musical interludes, courtesy of hillbilly warblers Hank Penny and Slim Duncan. An uncredited Jock Mahoney performs a few of the Durango Kid's chancier stunts.
