Storyline

Billy the Kid (Buster Crabbe) and Fuzzy Jones (Al St. John) are on their way out of Arizona being chased by some riders who hope to cash in on the reward money for their capture. They are warned in time by Ed Dawson (Hansel Warner), but Ed is wounded in the getaway. They get a doctor (John Elliott) to attend to Ed. The latter tells them there is a range war in progress across the border and that he is looking for men to help make a cattle drive to the rail junction. Agreeing to help, they head for the Dawson ranch and run across a Dawson man who has been killed from ambush. Mary Dawson (Frances Gladwin), Ed's sister, thinks they did it but they convince her of their innocence. The news of the killing causes ranch foreman Brandon (Charles King), secretly working for the rustlers, to try and get the rest of the Dawson hands to quit, but Billy intercedes and agrees to take the cattle through for Sam Dawson (Ed Cassidy). Brandon and Coulter (Glenn Strange) have their henchmen stampede the... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

[Stone riffles through a handful of wanted posters offering rewards for the apprehension of Billy the Kid]
Henchman Stone: Five thousand more is 25,000, three is 28 and two is 30. The state's offering $30,000 for the capture of the Kid, dead or alive. Now we don't have to fight the law, because they're the ones who have to pay off. This is the easiest money I've run up against. Now Billy is a smooth customer - he's shot his way out of a lotta traps and we won't give him the chance. He's got to come...

Very Deceptive
22 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Al St. John got a little more attention in this Billy the Kid feature Cattle Stampede. While he and Billy are rescuing the leading lady St. John who was quite the rubber faced comedian was given a great moment in the series to perform some comic bits.

Buster Crabbe and St. John are once again fleeing the law and once again get themselves involved in a local situation, this time involving another would be cattle king trying to corner the local market. Part of this film involves St. John trying and succeeding in taking on one of the henchmen in a fist fight and making the outlaw look stupid and embarrassed. It would be better for his reputation to lose a gun battle with Buster Crabbe than to have Fuzzy take you out.

St. John was a great physical comedian with great use of his face and body for laughs. Western sidekicks usually fall in two categories, those who really help the hero and those who the hero keeps around for laughs and who more often than not the hero has to bail from trouble.

St. John mixed the types better than anyone else ever did. He looks so useless and that was very deceptive. This film from PRC poverty row studio that it was was one of St. John's finest cinema hours.
