Historical accuracy be damned!
When Billy the Kid is framed and convicted for murder his buddies Fuzzy and Jeff help him to escape...and off they go to Santa Fe where Billy becomes the sheriff. Things get even stranger then.
Bob Steele plays Billy, Al "Fuzzy" St. John is Fuzzy, and Rex Lease is Jeff in this alternate reality where Billy the Kid was not a cold-blooded killer.
This was the sixth of ten Billy the Kid movies that Sam Newfield directed under different names from 1940 to 1942. Joseph O'Donnell scripted this one, as well as three others in the series.
Saddle up, partners!
