Billy Carson and Fuzzy Jones have just collected a reward and Fuzzy indulges in a dream of getting away from the hectic life he has been leading and wants to settle down. They arrive in Red Rock just as the newspaper is being sold at foreclosure and, despite the attempts by Lafe Barlow to intimidate him from bidding. Fuzzy finds himself the owner of a newspaper. Fuzzy meets Edith Martin, daughter of the former owner, and unthinkingly commits himself to carrying on her father's policy of bringing a telegraph line to Red Rock. For reason of his own, Barlow is against this and has his henchmen wage a campaign of terror against the ranchers and citizens. Before long, Billy who had been lazily indifferent to everything connected to Fuzzy and his newspaper, decides to take a hand on the side of the good guys. Written by Les Adams <>

Predictable Story, But Not Bad Overall
2 January 2003 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

While it's a very predictable story, this B-Western is still not bad overall. Buster Crabbe and Fuzzy St. John are a likable pair of heroes, and it has a couple of lighter moments and some decent action. The story starts with Fuzzy deciding that he wants to 'settle down' instead of wandering about with Crabbe. He decides to become a 'respectable' citizen working on a newspaper, but very soon he gets caught in the middle of a dangerous confrontation with a gang of rustlers. Quite a bit happens after that, and while most of it is pretty predictable, the action is not bad. St. John also gets more screen time than he does in a lot of his supporting roles. Overall, it's nothing great, but worth a look if you like older Westerns.
