Overview

Synopsis

Cattle Stampede
Cattle Stampede was the 200th production of that legendary B-picture mill, PRC Studios. Buster Crabbe plays Billy the Kid (not the real one), while Al St. John, as ever, is Fuzzy Q. Jones. This time Billy and Fuzzy ("our old pals," as they were always billed) come the aid of a group of Oklahoma ranchers. The villains belong to a gang of cattle rustlers, headed by the swarthy Charlie King (whose character name, surprisingly, isn't "Blackie" ). The titular stampede isn't such a much, but Buster Crabbe's gunplay and Al St. John's buffoonery is well up to par. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Wild Horse Phantom
In this western, a courageous cowboy stops the land-grabbing conspiracy of a corrupt banker. The banker was planning to wait until hard-working local ranchers made their mortgage payments and then was going to stage a phony robbery so he could foreclose upon their land. Fortunately, the hero finds out about it and brings the crook to justice. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

The Kid Rides Again
In this western, Billy the Kid has been wrongfully arrested for robbing a train. In order to prove his innocence, the Kid breaks out of the pokey and hits the dusty trail to search for the real robbers. Along the way, he discovers an outlaw band impersonating upstanding ranchers. They are the real thieves, and naturally, the Kid brings them to justice. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Thundering Gun Slingers
Being in the presence of a gun-slinger is intimidating enough, but when a "thundering" gun-slinger comes riding over the horizon, it's time to make out the will and pick the coffin. Buster Crabbe plays Billy Carson, aka Billy the Kid, while Al St. John is his grizzled sidekick Fuzzy Q. Jones. The nephew of a cattle rancher framed for murder, Billy strives to clear his uncle's name and learn the identity of the genuine culprit. Meanwhile he falls in love with Bab Halliday (Frances Gladwin), daughter of another framed cattleman. Al St. John's extended comedy routines are accompanied by a stock musical score that would still be in use in made-for-TV cartoons well into the 1960s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Gangster's Den
The "urban" nature of the title notwithstanding, Gangster's Den is another PRC Studios B-western. Buster Crabbe and Al St. John, as usual, fill the roles of cowboys Billy Carson and Fuzzy Q. Jones. This time, Billy and Fuzzy are partners in a gold mine. Using his earnings, Fuzzy opens a saloon, which unfortunately turns into a safe harbor for every thief and varmint within shouting distance. Billy comes to Fuzzy's rescue, dispersing the crooks and bringing the worst of the bunch to justice. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
