Another good Lash LaRue - Fuzzy St. John B

Al "Fuzzy" St. John had been an acrobatic funny-man since his debut in silent comedies. He remained funny through his days as a western bad guy to and through his sidekick days.

Even in some of those atrocities with Buster Crabbe, Fuzzy was funny.

In "Ghost Town Renegades," we realize again that he even moves funny: Be sure to watch him pick up his hat early in this film.

Al "Lash" LaRue, billed here simply as Lash LaRue, in my opinion deserved and deserves better than he usually gets from critics and reviewers.

Without being gimmicky or affected, he does act.

Most important, he is a good cowboy.

Jennifer Holt, of the famous acting family, was a real beauty, but she doesn't get to do much here, not much more than be beautiful, which she does very well.

A very capable cast of bad guys (including Wally West using another name) and a pretty good script and a good score make "Ghost Town Renegades" a darn good B western, well worth watching.

My copy is on a disk with "Border Feud," also with Lash and Fuzzy, from Treasure Box Collections. It is "digitally remastered" and looks and sounds good -- you can hear the saddles creaking! -- except for being too dark, apparently from being a couple generations too old.
