Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Cowboy star Charles Starrett goes through his usual paces in the under-an-hour formula western The Lone Hand Texan. As ever, Starrett plays a roving do-gooder named Steve who adopts the disguise of The Durango Kid to further the cause of justice. This time, he dons his Durango mask to save his old pal Smiley (Smiley Burnette), whose oil-rich land is dearly coveted by the villains. Halfway through the proceedings, Steve is framed for murder (as usual), but by reel five the actual miscreants are eating dust or rotting away in the calaboose. Musical relief is provided by the hillbilly team of Mustard and Gravy, who are about as funny as their name.
