When Fuzzy (Al St.John) collects a handsome reward money after he & Billy Carson (Buster Crabbe)

have captured a couple of bankrobbers, he decides to settle down & become a respectable citizen ... & to this end he buys the local newspaper of the town Red Rock after its original owner (John Elliott) has been shot in the back by a gang of outlaws that threaten the townsfolks.

The daughter of the paper's original owner, Miss Edith (Patty McCarthy), convinces Fuzzy to continue her father's crusade against injustice, & to that end put all his efforts in convincing the townsfolks to build a telegraph-line, & he in turn convinces Miss Edith to stay on board & help him publish the paper.

It seems though that they have taken a bigger bite than they can chew on, as the secret leader of the outlaws, Lafe Barlow (Charles King), is one of Red Rock's most respected citizens, & he has no second thoughts about doing everything to sabotage the building of the telegraph, from trying to stir up a commotion at a meeting of citicens willing & able to pay for the telegraph to making a direct assault on Fuzzy's life. But thank god Billy is always nearby, & despite towards Miss Edith he pretends to be the carefree drifter he spoils each & any of Barlow's little plans.

But then it's payday, & Fuzzy collects all the money of the townsfolks to finally pay for the telegraph line ... & the very same night, Barlow has his men steal the money & kidnap Fuzzy. The next day, with the money & Fuzzy gone, Barlow creates some unrest among all those who trusted him, until at the right time one of Barlow's man brings in Fuzzy, claiming he captured him when he was leaving town ...

Billy can prevent a necktie party only in the last momet, but cannot clear Fuzzy of all suspicions so he is thrown into jail. Fortunately Billy is quick in putting 2 and 2 together, anbd at Barlow's place can find the stolen money & he can convince one of Barlow's outlaws, Pete (John Merton) to testify against him ...

& when he comes back to town with Pete it is just in time to prevent a second hanging organized by Barlow. But when Pete wants to confess against him, Barlow shoots him down in cold blood, then points his gun at Billy & forces him to disarm himself ... but Pete, with his dieing breath, grabs Billy's gun, which was just dropped down in front of him, & shoots Barlow.

Finally, Fuzzy has made it as a respected citizen, but when he sees Billy saddling his horse to move on, he wastes no time, gives the newspaper to Edith as a gift & rides after his friend ...

 

Little PRC was never a studio that could afford to spend much time or money on their movies (exclusively B-movies), & this movie (as do most of PRC's Westerns) proves just that, as its sets are rather carelessly assembled and its direction proves to be rather static & unimaginative. However, former Keystone Cop Al St.John's Fuzzy-character proves to be one of the best Western sidekicks ever, since, contrary to many other saddle pals, Al was able to carry portions of the film on his own back & had the ability to integrate his shenanigans seamlessly into the movie's plot instead of interrupting the sotry with an isolated comic routine. & furthermore, Buster Crabbe, who might now be better known for his portrayals of Flash Gordon & Buck Rogers, was one of the more accomplished B-cowboys of the 1930's & 40's (despite the fact that real success in the Western-genre seems to have always eluded him).
