How about them apples?
4 April 2006 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

Okay, let's start at the VERY beginning. Watch the storybook credits begin, and the hand turn the page, or at least tries to. It FUMBLES! Loved that. So begins 'His Brother's Ghost' a not bad actioner with the 'King Of The Cowboys' Buster Crabbe.. Yes, Buster Crabbe and his ever faithful sidekick, Al (Fuzzy) St. John. In this St John is murdered because the Bad Guys wants his land. Luckily, St. John has a twin brother that comes around to spook them out! Remember, Crabbe is the main guy here, so it IS kind of curious that the main plot focuses around St Johns' character. Oh well, Both of them are good, not great. What I always find amusing is that no one can shoot worth a lick except for Crabbe, who can shoot a gun out of someone's hand! Oh yeah, watch out for Crabbe's coughing horse. lol
