Description by OLDIES.com:
Bill "Wild Bill" Elliott plays Bill Boone, the grandson of Daniel Boone, who comes to the rescue of fair maiden (and renegade) Ellen Brandon, played by Betty Miles, who has shot and killed a tax collector in the employ of a crooked mayor. Mayor Ewell (Walter Soderling) is in the pocket of local thug Leach Kilgrain (Ray Bennett), whose goal is to gain control of the local ranches through an unscrupulous tax scheme. Newly remastered.
Having previously portrayed Wild Bill Hickok on screen, cowboy hero Bill Elliot impersonates another famed frontiersman in THE RETURN OF DANIEL BOONE. Somehow finding himself in the 19th century west, Daniel Boone takes on a pair of clever crooks, one of whom (Walter Soderling) serves as mayor of a small prairie town. The despicable duo has been growing wealthy by imposing huge taxes on the local populace, but Boone ain't a-gonna stand for that much longer. The more amusing than usual comedy-relief subplot involves a pair of pretty twin girls, who manage to drive Boone's sidekick Cannonball (Dub Taylor) plumb loco. Director Lambert Hillyer, whose career in westerns extended all the way back to the William S. Hart days, wraps everything up in a tight 60 minutes.
