The Utah Kid (1944)
About The Utah Kid
The Utah Kid was a late entry in Monogram’s “Trail Blazers” series. These low-budget westerns usually featured three cowboy stars; this time, however, there are only two, Bob Steele and Hoot Gibson. Though neither star is a spring chicken, Steele is the younger of the two, so he’s the “Utah Kid” by default. The plot, involving a gang of crooks who go around fixing rodeo results, was designed to accommodate yards and yards of stock footage.
