Fuzzy Acquires a Saloon
10 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

You will not find not a hint of a modern 20th century gangster in this Billy the Kid western, but we see a guy like I. Stanford Jolley operate like a gangster with a bit of a Snidely Whiplash villain thrown in.

Jolley has two objectives to acquire that saloon from which he can operate with impunity bilking the locals, but he also wants to acquire Sydney Logan's ranch the object being Sydney, he's slowly acquiring her by extending lots of credit to her brother who is deep in debt. It's the ranch or her or maybe both.

Fuzzy St. John gets the saloon temporarily and the best scenes are him trying to run it and be his own best customer. Good thing Buster Crabbe was around to set things right.

Gangster's Den, an amusing item from the Billy The Kid series.
