The Dakota Kid is 1950s classic starring James Bell, Eilene Janssen, Michael Chapin, Robert Shane and Dann Morton. Young teens Red White (Michael Chapin) and Judy Dawson (Eilene Dawson) are desperate and eager to help Red's grandfather, Sheriff Tom White (James Bell), in his fight against Ace Crandall (Robert Shane). Ace is a con artist who is trying to gain control of the entire Paiute, Arizona county and profit as much from the community as possible. He initiates a plan that involves foreclosing a majority of the community homes, and ejecting the local sheriff from office. Ace gets the Dakota Kid (Dann Morton) to carry out his schemes, forcing the community to sign petitions and orders. However, as the Dakota Kid begins spending more time with Judy, Red, and other community members, he begins to feel different about his plan. This classic movie is directed by Philip Ford and co-directed by John Grubbs.
