Billy the Kid Trapped (1942)

An American western directed by Sam Newfield, starring Buster Crabbe and Anne Jeffreys.
A trio of noble and honest cowboys are mistaken for a trio of look-alike outlaws. After saving the sheriff from a bullet wound, they endeavor to clear their names.
This was pretty standard, but a fine way to spend 54 minutes. Despite the series-indicative title, it has nothing to do with Roy Rogers' Returns film, except the similar premise. The production wasn't stellar and I noticed some lack of wind-screen on the audio. The video had some artifacts as well. The plot kept my interest and the characters were few and easily identifiable. Relatively quick pacing paired with that good old western setting definitely helped. I rate it o.k. because it's just a regular western flick.
