Storyline

Steve Kinney and his henchman, Mort, are trying to stir up trouble between the local ranchers and farmers, behind a wave of rustling and lawlessness. Mort kills Vic, a Kirby cowhand, and lays the blame on Dan Harper, the leader of the farmers faction. Storekeeper Fuzzy Q. Jones, fearful of losing the outstanding charge-accounts he has on his books, drags his reluctant pal, Billy Carson, into the fray, and the two soon prove Kinney and his henchmen to be behind the valley's troubles.

Bus-ter!

Pretty amusing movie for such a standard storyline. AKA, a bad guy in town sets up the ranchers and the settlers to go against each other, and the middleman can profiteer of all of the cattle he steals from them too1 New man in town, Billy Carson, along with his ever present side kick Fuzzy, have suspicions about the origins of this feud, so they do a little investigating. Unfortunately, one of the female ranchers, thoroughly disagrees with this reasoning, and rips a new one into Carson every chance she gets. Fuzzy, for good reason stands back while all of this is happening. Pretty soon, Carson tries to stand back and tries to let the feuders realize who is setting them up. But will Carson be forced to intervene again? You know, the more I watch the Buster Crabbe westerns, the more I like them. They're quite lightweight, have plenty of action, and have a great pairing of Crabbe and Al St John sure make a good team. As a matter of fact, John often steals the movie from Crabbe. He's quite funny with his facial expressions and what not.

Predictable, but yet entertaining!
