This isn't one of Johnny Mack Brown's better films. The script is threadbare, so this 61 minute film is packed with too much comedy relief featuring Fuzzy Knight and songs like "The Bears Give Me the Bird!" There's so much "comedy" in the film that one could honestly refer to the ridin', fightin', and shootin' scenes as "action relief."
The only thing that makes this sloppily-edited B western at all interesting is some incredibly bizarre moments: Fuzzy cuts off a bad-guy's hair and glues it to his face to make a beard; a daughter loses her dad in a shooting and expresses practically no remorse, since her acting range is so limited; and a jaw-dropping racist joke at the film's conclusion.
Nell O'Day (as Fuzzy's sister)steals the show here: she has as many action scenes as Brown himself and shows a hell of a lot more spunk.
Even undiscriminating B Western fans will likely have a tough time getting through this one.
