Movie Info

A well-acted, well-paced entry in the Don "Red" Barry Western series from Republic Pictures, The Sombrero Kid features the diminutive Barry as Jerry Holden, the apparent son of veteran lawman Tom Holden (Robert Homans). But when Holden Sr. is killed by one of Banker Martin's (Joel Friedkin) gang of claim jumpers, Jerry learns that his real father was Bart Clanton, a notorious bandit killed by Marshal Holden, who then raised the orphaned boy as his own. After accidentally killing one of Martin's men, Taggart (I. Stanford Jolley), in a barroom fight, Jerry becomes a fugitive wanted for murder. He joins a gang led by Smoke (Stuart Hamblen), one of Martin's henchmen, hoping to obtain enough evidence to convict the crooked banker. Along with Tommy Holden Jr. (John James), who has replaced his father as town marshal, Jerry sets a trap for Mason's weak-willed son Phillip (Rand Brooks). In a desperate attempt to escape justice, Mason kills Phillip but is arrested by Jerry. The latter is cleared of all charges and elected sheriff by a grateful citizenry.more
