The Fargo Kid

Culver City, CA: RKO Radio Pictures, 1940. Two vintage studio still photographs from the 1940 film, each with "Theatre Advertising Co." and "Silver Screen Archives" stamps on the verso.

Based on W.C. Tuttle's 1923 short story "Sir Piegan Passes," which had been adapted to the screen twice before, in Wallace Fox's "Man in the Rough" (1928), starring Bob Steele and Marjorie King, and in Robert F. Hill's "The Cheyenne Kid" (1935), starring Tom Keene and Mary Mason.

The Fargo Kid (Tim Holt) is mistaken for a notorious outlaw and hired as a killer.
