Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Western star Don "Red" Barry essays a dual role in Republic's Outlaws of Santa Fe. Actually, the two "characters" are one: Barry plays a reformed bank robber named Bob Hackett, who starts life anew as Bob Conroy. This he does to track down the no-good, dirty skunk who murdered his father. Meanwhile, a rash of bank holdups occur, leading the Law to assume that Hackett/Conroy is up to his old tricks. Wally Vernon supplies the usual comedy relief, while precocious child actress Twinkle Watts is as annoying as she'd been in earlier Barry westerns.
