Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Arizona Manhunt was the second entry in Republic's "Rough Ridin' Kids" series. Michael Chapin returns as Red, the precocious grandson of Sheriff White (James Bell), while Eilene Janssen likewise reappears as Red's best friend Judy. Once again, the two kids get involved with grown-up western desperadoes, in this case the outlaw gang formerly controlled by Judy's foster father. When the crooks (led by the inevitable Roy Barcroft) ride into town loaded for bear, it is Red and Judy who bring them to justice. Somehow or other, Arizona Manhunt manages to accommodate a xylophone solo by young Eilene Janssen.
