Officially released one month before PRC's "Billy the Kid" entry Prairie Badmen, Ghost of Hidden Valley, another "Billy"effort, was issued simultaneously with the later film for its New York debut in July of 1946. The story is the usual, with Billy Carson (Buster Crabbe) and Fuzzy Q. Jones (Al St. John) defended some good guys against some bad guys. This time, a young homesteading couple (Jean Carlin, John Meredith) are menaced by a gang of rustlers. The villains are using the couple's spread to hide their stolen livestock, threatening to kill both husband and wife if they tell the authorities. But Billy and Fuzzy see to it that justice triumphs within the film's allotted 56-minute running time.
