Prairie Badmen is a typically threadbare entry in PRC's "Billy the Kid" series. This time around, Billy Carson (Buster Crabbe) and Fuzzy Q. Jones (Al St. John) link up with medicine show proprietor Doc Latimer (Edward Cassidy). Having discover a cache of hidden gold, Latimer intends to keep it all for himself, but Billy and Fuzzy elect to return the ore to its rightful owner. Unfortunately, the bad guys learn of Latimer's good fortune and try to cut themselves in for a slice. Leading lady Patricia Knox adds little to the proceedings except a lot of heavy breathing and inexpert line deliveries.
