This is one of the Stooges better efforts and one of their best westerns (apparently Moe didn't like doing westerns, but since they turned out to be very popular with their fans, Columbia overrode Moe's misgivings). Curly is at his peak, and there are some very funny and very clever gags (the boys disguising themselves as bushes to spy on the rustlers' camp, a "rigged" card game they play with the head bad guy, the great Stanley Blystone) and even Larry has more to do than usual, and does it well. The Stooges look like they were actually having fun making this one--Moe's aversion to westerns not withstanding--and it shows. A very good short by the boys.
