In a shoot-out, deputy Tom's (Fred Scott) father (Frank LaRue), the
Sheriff, is shot at and gravely injured by outlaw Scar (Charles King), and
now everyone expects Tom to take over his father's job and track down Scar
... but Tom's sweetheart Alice (Phoebe Logan) won't let him, claiming it
would worry her too much - but it's actually because, unbeknowest to
everyone, Scar is her brother. So to the dismay of many a villager
including his father, tom becomes a farmer.
Then Tom and Alice are to
marry, but Scar has chosen exactly their wedding ceremony to murder Tom's
dad - which makes Tom forget everything he has promised Alice and track
down Scar - to the house of his and Alice's father (Lafe McKee). And in
the shootout that ensues, Scar even proves ruthless enough to shoot his
own dad, before he goes one-on-one with Tom ... but in the end, Alice's
father does the right thing and shoots Scar with his dying breath ...
St.John can be seen as Fred scott's sidekick and comic relief in one of
his first films as Fuzzy, and in tune with his roots in early slapstick,
he does some pie-throwing.
Nothing special, but an ok cheap
B-Western with a few songs thrown in (Scott was first and foremost a
singer), which are not too intrusive and bring the action to not too
grinding a halt.
