Buster Crabbe,King of the Wild West,appears in this western programmer that is fairly routine and predictable. His rubbery sidekick, Al "Fuzzy" St. John latches onto a mail-order bride with disastrous results. Buster proceeds to try and knock some sense into the love-struck cowpoke.
Buster Crabbe is fine here, with a good mix of humor and action. I also enjoyed the performance by character actor George Chesboro --- who was excellent as always as a henchman. Unfortunately, the script and budget help to sink what could have been a decent shoot-em-up.
Even as a programmer, this one is not that noteworthy. Recommended for Buster Crabbe fans only .........
