Owners of a seemingly worthless ghost town called Waterhole return to
the town are receiving ridiculously low offers to sell their property and
are killed off one by one when they come to the ghost town themselves to
see what's going on. Cheyenne Kid (Lash La Rue) and Fuzzy (Al St.John) are
called in to investigate undercover, and it doesn't take them long to save
one of the landowners, Trent (Steve Clark) from a gang of outlaws, and
later also his daughter Diane (Jennifer Holt).
In the next town,
Cheyenne and Fuzzy are quick to identify the man behind the plot, Vance
Sharp (Jack Ingram), who has learned about a gold vein in Waterhole and
now tries to kill of all the landowners and forge their deeds to get hold
of the whole place. But while Cheyenne and Fuzzy can now finger the
baddie, they can't have him arrested without any hard evidence. And while
they are still investigating, Sharp turns the tables on them, killing
Trent after all and convincing Diane that Cheyenne and Fuzzy are behind
Of course, though, Cheyenne and Fuzzy manage to collect
enough evidence against Sharp before long, manage to convince Diane that
Sharp is the real baddie of the story, and eventually they arrest him and
Nothing great, but a competently made B-Western from
the cheap end of the spectrum: It's well paced, packed with enough action
to keep one interested, and Al St.John does a few funny slapstick routines
without being obnoxious or stopping the film dead in its tracks. No
mastrepiece for sure, but entertaining.
