Storyline

Wellington Holmes, a timid and very shy horticulturist, heads for Big Bluff. When the stagecoach is held up by Buckskin Bill and his men, he coincidentally knocks out three of them earning himself the unwanted job, as Marshall of Big Bluff. After escaping Big Bluff, disguised as a woman, the stagecoach is again held up by Buckskin and he, Elena Montoya and her father are made prisoners. He escapes again and when Buckskin arrives in town he again coincidentally overpowers the criminals. Having been previously masked, Buckskin now claims to be Buckskin's enemy and the residents of Big Bluff believe him. They release him and offer him the reward for leading Wellington to Buckskin's hideout. So Wellington and Elena with the ransom money for her father, but no posse, head out to bring in Buckskin. The law is kept & all of the criminals are successfully captured, brought to the county's prison and are put behind bars. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Not Great
18 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Joe E. Brown made some fine comedies in the early 1930s at Warners. By the end of the decade, he had slipped by making some cheap independent features for David Loew and then making some equally cheap outings for Columbia. Directed by Abbott and Costello regular Charles Barton, this Columbia B film is just another in an endless parade of western spoofs. Brown is teamed with the underrated Fritz Feld, but there is no chemistry between them. At times, Feld is forced to take the role of Brown's straight man and he is quite uncomfortable in this capacity. Brown spends a fair share of screen time in drag; Bert Wheeler is more effective in this type of comedy. There are some interesting glimpses of young Lloyd Bridges and Forrest Tucker in supporting roles. All in all, pretty disappointing.
