Audience Reviews for Billy the Kid Returns


141227: Having watched quite a few of these old Roy Rogers films in the last year, this one surprised me quite a bit at the beginning. Everything is explained in good time but I found myself torn a bit about the ending. Not sure if framing villains is the way to get rid of them; even if the Villains lie when they are nabbed. On another note, watching Billy the Kid Returns inspired me to research Roy Rogers a bit. In all these films I've watched he just seems like such a great guy. Love his demeanor, the music and the humorous characters. The late 30s, early 40s films seem so much fun. And I must admit, Rogers was a handsome and obviously talented guy. These films are all class, and though this one suffers from extremely dumb villains, it's included in that global rating.

Typical Roy Rogers western, but that's not a bad thing. Short, entertaining, some good songs, enough action to keep the film moving. Good support.
