Legendary western hero Kit Carson and his dependable side-kick, El Toro, ride from one dangerous situation to the next, always fighting for truth and justice. Bill Williams, who had a long film and TV career in westerns, crime dramas and science fiction, plays the upright scout Carson with rugged believability. The role of Kit's girl-crazy Mexican pal is humorously handled by Don Diamond, who later played Cpl. Reyes in the "Zorro" series (1957-1959) and Crazy Cat in "F Troop" (1965) before lending his voice to a series of animated cartoon characters. "The Adventures of Kit Carson" is an early rough-riding treasure from the golden age of TV westerns that brought iconic shows like "The Lone Ranger," "The Cisco Kid," "Roy Rogers" and "Wild Bill Hickok" to small screens across America.
Wild Horses of Pala: Kit is carrying $30,000 from the Army to pay an Indian tribe for a thousand horses, but a scheming agent plans to steal the money.
Bandits' Blade: When stolen U.S currency plates are quickly recovered, traces of printer's ink on the plates reveal an unusual counterfeiting plot.
Snake River Trappers: Food supply wagons bound for an Indian reservation are hijacked by fur trappers trying to drive the tribe off of their land.
Ghost Town: To prevent interference with their gold shipment robberies, outlaws kidnap a Cavalry captain's wife.
First airing on American television in the early 1950s, western series THE ADVENTURES OF KIT CARSON followed the thrilling adventures of Kit Carson and his Mexican partner El Toro in their pursuit of justice and women. Bill Williams plays Kit Carson, while Don Diamond plays his goofy pal. During its run, the series fell into the same category as other TV westerns such as "Roy Rogers," "The Cisco Kid," and "The Lone Ranger." This Volume contains four episodes from the show: "Wild Horses of Pala," "Bandit's Blade," "Snake River Trappers," and "Ghost Town." In these episodes, Carson and El Toro must defend innocent people against robbers, renegade fur trappers, outlaws, and kidnappers.
