Heres another fine mess
4 September 2010 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Difficult to understand why Stan laurel would want to be bothered to crank out B Westerns,Maybe to give employment to Al St John,whom he probably played with many times in silent comedies.St John has some very boring business first trying to solve a puzzle and then tripping up over everything.No doubt the idea being if it isn't funny the first time maybe it will be the tenth time.Unfortunately it isn't.The plot is rather bog standard the usual stolen land grant.Fred Steele sings a few songs and fights the baddies most of whom look extremely overweight and who would not be able to hit a cows backside with a banjo.The ending and everything about this film is predictable.
