Buster Crabbe heads up a great western cast
7 July 2020 | by frank4122See all my reviews

Buster Crabbe and Fuzzy keep the Billy the Kid legend alive and well. Joan Barclay, a favorite western leading lady is as endearing as ever. Ted Adams, who usually plays the villain doesn't disappoint as shiffty Sheriff Carson. Doc (Milton Kibbee) is the king of malpractice as all of his patients somehow end up dead. Future comedy writer, Dave O'Brien plays it true to form in the threesome of cowboy heroes. John Merton gives his usual strong performance as the top bandito. St. John's Keystone Cop background served him well with some great scenes with Dickey (Joel Newfield) and some great one-liners like, "That low down posionous horn toad."
