Description by OLDIES.com:

A gang of vigilantes frame Dave Carson for rustling, and hang him without a trial. His hot-blooded nephew, Billy Carson, seeks revenge for the lynching. Billy takes over his dead uncle's ranch intending to find out who's behind the murders that are causing local cattle ranchers to sell out and flee. He suspects that "honest" businessman Steve Kirby is the vigilantes' leader. When Billy is jailed on trumped-up murder charges, he must escape before his appointment with the hangman's noose.

Olympic swimming medalist Buster Crabbe starred in over a hundred films playing action heroes, most notably in the serials Flash Gordon (1936) and Buck Rogers (1939). He starred on TV in the popular series "Captain Gallant Of The Foreign Legion" (1955-1957) along with his real-life son, Cullen.

Product Description:

Being in the presence of a gunslinger is intimidating enough, but when a "thundering" gunslinger comes riding over the horizon, it's time to make out the will and pick the coffin. Buster Crabbe plays Billy Carson, aka Billy the Kid, while Al St. John is his grizzled sidekick Fuzzy Q. Jones. The nephew of a cattle rancher framed for murder, Billy strives to clear his uncle's name and learn the identity of the genuine culprit. Meanwhile he falls in love with Bab Halliday (Frances Gladwin), daughter of another framed cattleman. Al St. John's extended comedy routines are accompanied by a stock musical score that would still be in use in made-for-TV cartoons well into the 1960s.
