The Renegade stars Larry "Buster" Crabbe and Al St. John in their standard B-western roles of Billy the Kid and Fuzzy. Coming to the aid of victimized townsfolk, Billy and Fuzzy try to foil a cartel of evil land-grabbers. They'd better hurry, or else the town bank will go bust, wiping out everyone in the vicinity. In some areas, this PRC western was shipped out as Billy the Kid in the Renegade. In 1947, the film was pared down to 40 minutes and reissued as Code of the Plains.
