Better than usual B-Western
27 March 2007 | by (Studio City, CA) – See all my reviews

Stokesville is being terrorized by the Bricker Gang and local sheriff Smiley Burnette as Frog Milhous does not have the resources to counter. Local schoolteacher Carrie Stokes writes to former students now lawmen and requests aid.

Bob Livingston as Johnny Revere just happens to ride into town as Sam Philips, a local banker is shot and killed on Main Street. Meanwhile, local banker Sam Webster is cooperating with Beau Bricker and planning to take control by selling town bonds to Bricker.

Smiley sings a duo with puppet Loghead who is a nice addition to the cast. The script is filled with numerous twists and turns which are well plotted although some situations are contrived for obvious reasons.

Enjoyable B-Western without dull moments. Two dummies arguing is a nice change from the usual or predictable B ending.
