Western star Charles Starrett was amazing; he kept making the same film over and over, but always made it seem as if it was for the first time. In West of Sonora, Starrett once again plays a frontier good-guy named Steve (Steve Rollins, to be exact), who, when the need arises, disguises himself as The Durango Kid, masked righter of wrongs. This time, Steve/Durango champions the cause of 10-year-old Penelope Clinton (Anita Castle), who has spent her short life as the focus of a feud between her grandfathers, suspected outlaw Black Murphy (Steve Darrell) and Sheriff Jack Clinton (George Cheseboro). When Murphy rides off with Penelope, it's up to Durango to keep the two grandpops from blowing off each others' heads and to bring an end to their foolish quarrel. As a bonus, he also proves that Murphy isn't an outlaw after all by corralling the genuine culprit.
