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.

Arranged Range War
31 October 2010 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Buster Crabbe and Al St. John find themselves in the middle of an arranged range war in Oath Of Vengeance. Everybody is swearing blood oaths in this one. It's homesteaders versus cowboys here.

Of course in reality the whole thing is being arranged with a series of well planned incidents by villain Jack Ingram. He's looking to pick up some cheap land and this plot has been used a gazillion times in westerns both A and B.

Al St. John going under the name Fuzzy in most films had a remarkable rubber face that he could contort into all kinds of funny expressions. Note when Crabbe is having his climatic fight with Ingram, St. John puts a kind of minor key climax to the whole affair. The expression afterward is priceless.
