Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Veteran stunt-man Yakima Canutt not only played Buffalo Bill, Jr.'s nemesis in this obscure western from small-scale West Coast Studios, but was also credited with the original story. Not that the story was all that original: Buffalo played Buck Allen, whose girlfriend Betty (Joan Jaccard) doesn't know that he is the Cheyenne Kid. Gorman (Canutt), an outlaw, does know and attempts to capture Buck for the $5,000 reward. Wounded by Gorman, Buck surrenders to Marshal Utah Kane (Jack Mower) and together they prove that Gorman and his henchman Duke (Frank Ellis) were behind the crimes mistakenly attributed to Buck. Like four other Buffalo Bill, Jr. vehicles, Cheyenne Kid was filmed in 1930 but not released until August of 1931.
