Crabbe & St. John - Farce and a Bit of a Western
Once again the people at PRC decided to make a farce starring Al "Fuzzy" St. John and append a western drama starring Buster Crabbe (Billy Carson). Those who like St. John's puerile antics will love this film - otherwise its a deeply flawed short western. It has a bunch of the regular bad guys: Stan Jolley, Jack Ingram, George Chesebro, Kermit Maynard, and others. In a nice twist Charles King plays a wide-eyed, drink loving fool on the good side of the law. The obligatory cutie is Sydney Logan - according to IMDb this is only appearance on screen and they offer no further info on her. While I'm no big fan of St. John's silliness, especially when it dominates what would otherwise have been a good western, the movie is your typical average quality B western.
