Son of Billy the Kid is a 1949 American Western film directed by Ray Taylor starring Lash LaRue.[1] Produced by Ron Ormond, the film was co-written by Ormond's wife June Carr who also plays a lead role in the film. This film was not part of the 11-film Marshal Lash LaRue movie series, although it was made simultaneously with the series.


The film imagines Billy the Kid was not killed and successfully adopted another identity.

Jack Garrett, no relation to Pat Garrett, interrupts a stagecoach holdup. He meets Fuzzy the town's stagecoach driver, station agent, baggage agent, Justice of the Peace, sheriff of the town and banker Jim Thorn. The trio team up to prevent robberies of Thorn's bank by Clem Yantis's large gang.
