Storyline

Wolf Valley is in the throes of a land-grab engineered by Barlow and Taylor. The fight against them is led by Billy Carson, who is framed on a murder charge which the outlaws believe will drive him out of the territory. But instead of running, Billy surrenders and stands trial before Judge Ryan, a square shooter. After weighing the evidence, Ryan finds Bill not guilty but sentences Billy to jail for 30 days for disturbing the peace because the Judge thinks that is the only way to save Billy from the vengeance of Barlow and Taylor. But, without Billy's leadership, the settlers are helpless and ranches are burned, cattle rustled, the town is shot up, the bank robbed and the mining claim owned by Billy and Fuzzy Jones is confiscated. Ryan releases Billy who puts on a fake mustache, gets a sombrero and poses as a Mexican cattle-buyer in order to work his way into the gang. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Crackerbarrel Judge
10 June 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

One of the more enjoyable of the PRC Billy the Kid westerns was Frontier Outlaws where Buster Crabbe and Al St. John are fighting to protect the Circle C ranch along with the other ranchers from the depredations of Jack Ingram and Charles King, a pair of veteran B picture western heavies. The accent is definitely on the comedy and not just from Al St. John.

The Circle C is owned by Marin Sais and Frances Gladwin, mother and daughter. Sais is a frontier woman in the tradition of Marjorie Main and she's a pip in her part.

But the best in the film is character actor Emmett Lynn who plays a cracker barrel frontier judge, a kindler gentler version of Judge Roy Bean. He and Mais have a thing for each other, but just can't quite commit.

Definitely one of the better Billy the Kid features.
