The Durango Kid was my #1 cowboy hero when I was a lad 70 years ago! Today, it boggles my mind that I thought he was so great!
Better than average Durango....

"I found this DVD for $9.99, and was pleased that Sony/Columbia has begun to put some of the Durango Kid releases on DVD. Blazing Across the Pecos is indeed entertaining. True, the plot is simple and tried, but unlike a couple of other reviewers, I believe this B-Western does hold interest, and, with such stand-outs as Smiley Burnette and Jock Mahoney, is fun to watch. You can't go wrong with a Durango Kid. Print quality is superb. Now, let's hope Sony will release a lot more Durangos [Bonanza Town is also out]. They've begun to put out some Randy Scott, Glenn Ford, and other "A" Westerners. During the late 1940s (with G. Autry and Ch. Starrett) and later in the 1950s (with Scott, Ford, and others) Columbia Pictures did justice to the Western movie genre. Now that Platinum Disc has released about 40 Hopalong Cassidy movies (all digitally remastered prints), Sony might think about putting out nicely-priced sets of Durangos....
I do wish someone at Warner would consider some of the 1950s Randolph Scott Westerns, as well. While they generally weren't as well-produced as the Columbias, several of them (e.g., Carson City, Seven Men from Now, Westbound, Fort Worth, Colt .45) are superior and deserve to be put on DVD...."

"The good news first, dvd quality is excellent throughout, both picture and sound. This Durango Kid feature is only 54 minutes but seems twice as long. Story is written around lots of stock footage and makes little sense. The lack lustre supporting cast just go through the motions, while Smiley Burnette is simply awful, and Charles Starrett looks bored. Jock Mahoney has a short scene as well as doing his usual excellent stunt work. At $17.95 it is very over priced. There are many far superior Starrett westerns let's hope that Columbia makes a better choice next time. How about two westerns to a disc."
Great durango kid

"This is a great dvd. others have said this is not. If you Know how these old westerns are they are all a little corny. But this durango kid is a very good one. charles is good and the story is good. the picture quality is great espically for an old black and white western. sure there are better westerns but,if you are a true durango kid this will not disapoint"
