A bit of a Dark Old House in the Wild Wild West.
8 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my first range Busters film and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Crash, Dusty and Alibi(and Elmer) ride to the rescue of a cantankerous old rancher who thinks that someone is trying to murder him for his fortune.Turns out the cranky old codger was right and the Range Busters end up switching from Bodyguard mode to Detective mode as they try to solve the mystery of Who Killed the Ornery Old Money Bags.

This movie combines some of the best features of the Old Timey Westerns and the infamous Dark Old House mysteries. The movie features all the rough ridin', shootin' and singing of an old western plus they manage to work in secret passages, missing fortunes, trap doors and a (kind of) ghostly haunting. The suspect list is long and full of red herrings and the true identity of the killer is not revealed until about a minute or two is left in the film, right after a harrowing chase scene.

"Alibi" Terhune and his ventriloquist dummy Elmer supply most of the laughs. I have to say it's both funny and a bit odd to see Terhune talking with Elmer when there isn't anyone else in the room. Elmer is treated almost like he's another person and even gets billing in the credits. But he deserves it. That little guy is a hoot.

There's also a few laughs supplied by the folksy, but lazy sheriff, a few songs by dusty and some stunts by good old Crash.

This movie was obviously made to entertain the "sitck and hoop" set, but adults can have a lot of fun with it too. I'm not sure if all the Range Busters movies are this much fun, but i'm looking forward to finding out.
