Movie Info

Buster Crabbe essays a dual role in the PRC horse opera The Drifter. Crabbe is seen in his usual guise as dogooder Billy Carson (aka Billy the Kid) and as bank robber Drifter Davis. When Drifter commits a series of holdups, Billy is held responsible-and small wonder, since Drifter has been going around pretending to be Billy. Even Fuzzy Q. Jones (Al St. John), the hero's sidekick, is fooled by Drifter, though not for long. All expenses were spared in bringing The Drifter to the screen, though Buster Crabbe and Al St. John are their usual talented selves.
