Charles Starrett played a dual role as a former Texas Ranger and his secret identity, "The Durango Kid", in a long-running series of B-Westerns in the 1940s and ?50s. His standard sidekick, Smiley Burnette, was around for comic situations and light-hearted musical entertainment between the action sequences, where he'd sometimes lend his pal a hand in solving the mystery and capturing the bad guys. Steve Woods (Starrett), Smiley and the Sheriff of Dusty Creek go to a ghost town mine in search of missing gold and re-tell the tale of how a gang of crooks stole the gold and were later double-crossed by one of the thieves. Newly remastered.
Once more, Charles Starrett hits the trail as the masked do-gooder known as The Durango Kid in STREETS OF GHOST TOWN. Also once more, Starrett spends his "unmasked" scenes playing a character named Steve, in this case Steve Woods. The slender plot concerns a treasure hunt in a supposedly deserted town. This premise is used as an excuse to showcase lengthy excerpts from previous "Durango Kid" westerns, offered herein as "flashbacks." Columbia Pictures had a positive genius for recycling old footage into new movies: as proof, one need only peruse all those patchwork Three Stooges comedies of the 1950s.
