Overview

Roy Rogers plays an outlaw out to avenge the murder of his brother in this fine Republic Western directed by one of the masters of the genre, Joseph Kane. Learning that the man he believes to be the killer, Lee Jessup (Bob Steele), is running a gambling establishment in Sonora, the Kid manages to obtain a job body guarding Jessup's saloon and its star attraction, Joby (Pauline Moore). But although intent on biding his time, the hero cannot stand idly by while Jessup is taking advantage of a naïve prospector (Noah Beery Jr.) and is forced to show his hand. One of Rogers' better early vehicles, The Carson City Kid is enlivened by a couple of good songs, including "Are You the One?" and "Sonora Moon," both by Peter Tinturia and performed by Rogers and Moore (who later admitted to having been dubbed).

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
By 1940, the folks over at Republic Pictures were mighty busy turning the former Leonard Slye into Roy Rogers, ace B-Western hero. Although not the genre superstar that he would become later in the decade -- especially after the studio lost Gene Autry to the war efforts -- Rogers was awarded quite a supporting cast in The Carson City Kid: Bob Steele, fresh from Lewis Milestone's Of Mice and Men (1939) and himself a veteran B-Western star; George "Gabby" Hayes, one of Hollywood's best comic sidekicks, who had just recently left Paramount's Hopalong Cassidy series over a salary dispute; and Noah Beery Jr., young and promising and with a stellar motion picture pedigree. Add the beautiful Pauline Moore and such stalwart Western film regulars as Hal Taliaferro and Yakima Canutt and you have what they used to call a "nervous A," a genre film good enough to play the top half of a double bill. Yet despite all this star quality, the best performance in The Carson City Kid is offered by a less-remembered old-timer, silent screen leading man Francis McDonald, who is quite poignant as a tired old outlaw.
