When Billy Carson agrees to ride out to Red Rock to help his friend Fuzzy, he gets more trouble than he bargains for. Vic Landreau the local gang lord is in possession of a stolen railroad map and Billy intends to find both the map and the person who murdered his friend Dave. Vic leaves a trail of broken matchsticks, which put Billy on his trail. Will Billy’s wits match Vic’s craftiness?
"This thrilling western has the versatile Buster Crabbe cast in the familiar role of Billy Carson -a cowboy turned investigator who is after a stolen railroad map and a murderer. Director Sam Newfield is once again at his directional best, producing a thriller out of a plot that is really quite predictable. Although you don’t see much of action in terms of gunfights, Fuzzy’s portrayal of a one-man industry - barber, sheriff and judge all at once - has you in splits for most part of the narrative. Charles King carries the role of a greedy gang lord pretty to new heights, while Billy is at his gang-busting best.
All in all, this is a thrilling western that has you engrossed with intrigue and humor. Witness how the deductive powers of Carson are pitted against the guiles of the villainous Landreau."
"This surely is one of the funniest westerns I have witnessed from the 30s. I think the producer decided to do away with the use of bullets and use humor instead, and his gamble seems to have paid off. I can imagine how Fuzzy’s antics may have enthralled audiences back then, and found this to be refreshing change from the run of the mill westerns."
