Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Charles Starrett plays lawman Steve Forsythe in Ridin' the Outlaw Trail. Somewhere along the line, of course, Steve is obliged to don the mask of The Durango Kid, mysterious righter of wrongs. The "wrongs" in this instance include the theft of $20,000 in gold, and the "kidnapping" of a blacksmith's forge! Jim Bannon, who only a few months earlier had played the heroic Red Ryder, provides the villainy in this fast-paced "Durango Kid" entry. The musical chores are handled by Pee Wee King and his Golden West Cowboys. Sunny Vickers, a pert young starlet who was apparently being groomed for bigger things by Columbia, is the heroine.
