Brief Synopsis

In this entry in PRC's "Billy the Kid" series (aka "Billy the Kid in Law and Order" but known nowhere as "Billy the Kid's Law and Order") Billy the Kid (Buster Crabbe) and his pals Jeff Travis (Dave O'Brien as Tex O'Brien) and Fuzzy Jones (Al St. John), are arrested and brought to Ft. Culver, where Billy is amazed to discover that he and the post commander, Lt. Ted Morrison (Buster Crabbe), are exact doubles. Learning of a plot to swindle Aunt Mary Todd (Sarah Padden), a rich, blind relative of Morrison's, by marrying her off to imposter Simms (Hal Price) instead of her sweetheart George Fremont (George Morrell) who is on his way to her ranch, Billy and his pals escape and head for the ranch. Mil Crawford (Charles King), head of the gang scheming to get hold of the blind woman's fortune through Simms, has two men hold up the stage and kill Fremont and Morrison. Finding the bodies, Billy impersonates Morrison, and Crawford is furious when he sees Billy and mistakes him for the nephew, figuring his men had failed.The next day Linda (Wanda McKay), the niece of Fremont, arrives for the wedding and Billy meets her stagecoach and arranges for her to denounce Simms as an imposter.
