Hobnobbing with the governor
6 June 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Billy the Kid film from PRC has Billy the Kid hobnobbing with no less than the governor of some western territory/state who is being blamed for a rash of outlawry. In real life the only connection that William Bonney had with a governor was with Lew Wallace in New Mexico when he was negotiating for a pardon.

Glenn Strange is the best thing in this film, he's the guy behind the the outlaw activity and he's leading a movement to impeach the governor for his own nefarious purposes not quite explained other than the usual lust for money and power.

Buster Crabbe and the good citizens of the area should be grateful that Al St. John is around in this one. Billy the Kid ain't quite up to par in the end and Fuzzy proves invaluable.
