Fuzzy Clown his way through
11 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Residents of the town of Laramie, Wyoming which has had a colorful history with its origins beginning as an end of track station for the Union Pacific will be amused that at one time the place became a ghost town. The population was driven off by outlaws who wanted a free hand in finding what was supposed one big gold strike. At least that's what the story in this Billy The Kid western.

Buster Crabbe and Fuzzy St. John fleeing themselves from the law stop to aid a brother and sister going back to Laramie, not knowing the town is now empty and among the missing is their father who sent for them. In fact he's dead and the outlaws want to get their hands on a map leading to the strike.

A weak story is enlivened by the clownish antics of Fuzzy St. John who knew more ways to milk a scene than any other western sidekick. Also the title is once again a misnomer since the Oklahoma panhandle is nowhere near nor is the world panhandle is not even mentioned.
