Fuzzy (Al St.John) considers himself a psychic, and because he has
given some very sound advice (based on lucky guesses), everybody else
believes he's a genius. Then he learns about a rich goldmine from one of
his ghost friends - that just happens to be on unfortunate prospector Nord
Finner's (Charles King) land - who, without knowing about the gold, wants
$50,000 for the claim. Since he has not got the money himself, he
persuades the whole town into investing into the project. Of course he
doesn't know that Nord Finner is actually behind the predictions that led
to Fuzzy finding the gold, as one of his men pretends to be an Indian
spirit getting in touch from the netherworld via radio, just to make Fuzzy
buy the claim. Unfortunately, Fuzzy doesn't know this, but fortunately, he
has at least got enough common sense to call in Billy Carson (Buster
Crabbe) for assistance, and Billy realizes there's something fishy going
on pretty much from square one. Of course, Fuzzy, who considers himself at
the peak of his psychic career, doesn't believe him ...
Billy finds out
the method that Nord Finner and his men use to transmit the messages from
the netherworld, but is overcome and tied up by the gang before he can
spill the beans, and freed by Fuzzy and the sheriff (Bud Osborne) only
after the deal is done, but they soon catch up with Finner and gang, and
it's up top Fuzzy personally to catch up with, fight and defeat Finner and
retrieve the money.
It's only after Finner and company are already taken
in custody that a man from the railroad company arrives wanting to
effectively by Finner's country that technically is Fuzzy's now for a
whopping $150,000 ...
Absolutely nothing special, but to see
Fuzzy pretending to be a psychic (in full attire) is at least worth a few
laughs, and to his credit, he manages to handle large chunks of the film
in a humourous way without becoming moronic. Of course, the story of this
film is simplistic, childish even, but then again, the film was originally
targeted first and foremost at young boys - and it does contain enough
action to keep everyone entertained, too ...
