The Durango Kid rides again, this time trying to maintain peace between a post of Calvary officers quartered at Fort Sanders and the local Indians. When Chief Eagle is mysteriously shot during a meeting to discuss peace, his son Running Wolf (Jay Silverheels) threatens to avenge the death of his father with war. The local Indian Agent, Steve Holden (Charles Starrett), cautions the Colonel to remain calm and show Running Wolf that he stands for peace, but Steve finds himself caught in the middle with neither side trusting his council. Fortunately for all, Steve's outlaw alter-ego The Durango Kid is trusted by Running Wolf, and his quick action helps end the killing. Newly remastered.
Heavily trimmed prior to release, this entry in the Charles Starrett "Durango Kid" Western series for Columbia includes leading man Starrett dressed up as John Wayne's stunt double Yakima Canutt in order to match an entire sequence of stock footage lifted from the classic STAGECOACH (1939). Starrett plays his usual double-role as Steve (surname Holden this time around) and the Durango Kid, working desperately to prove that gun-runner Cronin (Robert J. Wilke) killed Chief Eagle (Chief Shooting Star) in order to exploit an Indian war. To flush out Cronin and his cronies, Steve gets help from shoe repairman Smiley Burnette and the fort commandant's young son (Tommy Ivo). Yodeling specialist Elton Britt performs his own "Chime Bells" and William Shakespeare Hays' "Mollie Darlin" while Smiley Burnette takes care of Who Don't'" and "The Happy Cobbler), both self-composed.
