Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Kit Carson appears in Trail of Kit Carson in the form of Allan "Rocky" Lane. The tall, dark and taciturn western hero spends most of his time searching for the murderer of the trailblazer partner. According to the official reports, Lane's pal died in an accident, but neither he nor we believe that. Director Leslie Selander proves anew that he was no mere hack; his handling of the familiar material goes beyond masterful. Trail of Kit Carson was intended as Allan Lane's final series western before his promotion to "civilian" pictures, but by 1946 he was back in the saddle again.
