Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Whirlwind Raiders differs from the usual run of Charles Starrett westerns only in the fact that it wasn't directed by the series' principal helmsman Ray Nazarro. Starrett is cast as ace rodeo rider Steve Lanning, who, when the need presents itself, assumes the guise of that masked justice-defender, The Durango Kid. The villains this time are s ia band of Texas law officers who use their authority to rob and plunder. When Steve figures out who's the "head man" behind the crooks, he dons his Durango mask and metes out justice. Featured in the cast is 10-year-old Don Kay Reynolds, aka Little Brown Jug, who was concurrently playing "Little Beaver" in the Red Ryder western series.
