Billy the Kid (Buster Crabbe) and his friends Fuzzy (Al St.John) and Jeff (Malcolm 'Bud' McTaggart) are in prison and waiting to be hanged for a murder they didn't commit, when a gang unknown to them breaks them free - and the gang doesn't even stick around and wait for Billy and friends to thank them, they just vanish. Billy and company are puzzled, but in no mood to stick around and investigate, since they only would be recaptured.

The gang behind the jailbreak is led by Boss Stanton (Glenn Strange), who has three men dressed up as Billy and his pals to commit all sorts of crimes and firmly put the blame on Billy. Of course, this scheme only works as long as Billy and friends stay alive.

Soon enough, Billy and pals stumble across Sheriff Masters (Ted Adams), a lawman who was shot when going after the fake Billy, and now the real Billy saves his life - and in return learns about the operations of Stanton, who more or less rules over Mesa City.

Billy and pals arrive in Mesa City and do a little investigating that soon gets Stanton and gang all jittery, so they gun down the Sheriff and make one of their own the new Sheriff in town, and see to it that the local judge (Milton Kibbee), who is on Stanton's payroll, sets all of Stanton's men free and gets some dirt on Billy. Eventually, Billy the Kid and gang are arrested, too, and Stanton and gang prepare to shoot them, when Sheriff Masters shows up to claim them as his prisoners. Stanton doesn't have any real objections since he figures that will take the problem of his hands without him have to dirty his own hands ... but Masters has only arrested them to free them from Stanton, and now they decide to secretly chase the crooked judge out of town and bring an honest one (Walter McGrail) in instead - but before they do that, they advertise it all over town, just to make sure that Stanton and gang will try to intercept the stagecoach delivering the judge. In the stagecoach, Billy and friends lie in waiting of course, and ultimately it all ends happily.

 

Nothing great, but a solid routine B-Western with Buster Crabbe once again making a likeable hero and Al St.John once again proving himself one of the best cowboy sidekicks in the biz, as his comedy is incorporated into the actual story rather than tacked on without much rhyme or reason.
