Billy Carson (Buster Crabbe) & Andy Jones (Al St.John) want to
crack down on a gang of bandits/killers, led by Thorne (Charles King), who
want to drive the local sharecroppers out of their farms ... if necessary
by killing them. But Billy unfortunately flls into the hands of the
bandits himself & Andy is shot.
Once Billy is free again, he meets up with Andy's brother Fuzzy, a
splitting image of Andy (& thus also Al St.John) & the 2 cook up a
mean little plan: use Fuzzy's similarities to Andy & let him appear as
Andy's ghost to the bandits to scare them witless & force them to
The plan works fine at first, when Fuzzy scares some of Thorne's small
time helpers, who readily confess everything, including who's really
behind it all: the honourable doctor Packard (Karl Hackett) & the
honourable judge Bentley (both of whom are also promptly arrested), but
Thorne is not fooled quite as easily, doesn't believe Fuzzy is his
brother's ghost, & eventually takes him prisoner ... so it takes quite
a fistfight to have Thorne arrested with the others.
The Billy Carson-Fuzzy Westerns are often quite entertaining
thanks to their (for a B-Western) fine leads & solid Western stories,
but this one is taking it too far, the plot of someone looking as
grotesque as Fuzzy being taken for a ghost just fails to come to life, & a
rather unimaginative direction doesn't help in saving the film, either.
