Ben Taggart

  1. Melvin Lang, The Durango Kid, 1940.      Change of Marshal Trayboe in Charles Starrett’s first of 63 outings as  the masked hero – like 1938’s Lone Ranger, something of an Anglo Zorro!   (Except, Starrett was a different character behind the mask almost every time). Taggert made 172  films  during  1915-1944, including the first She (Indiana’s Valeska Suratt)  1916, and a 1940 Flash Gordon serial. Lang was less prolific: just five movies, from 1939 to his 1940 death.
