Fuzzy Jones, Business Man
24 May 2004 | by Mike-764See all my reviews

Fuzzy uses sacks of gold dust, saved by himself & Billy, to buy a bar from Taylor, who is trying to avoid selling it to crooked lawyer Black, who wants to bar and property as part of a valuable mining property land grab. While Black and his henchmen try to scare off Fuzzy, Billy has his hands full battling Black and helping Ruth Lane to save her brother Jim from losing money gambling with Black's henchmen and then their ranch to Black. Decent entry in the Billy Carson series, which doesn't feature Crabbe/Billy that much, but focuses Fuzzy's comedy antics and his encounters with Emmett Lynn as the bar's new cook and Charlie King as Fuzzy's bodyguard with a taste for strange booze concoctions. All in all, it's a fun hour to spend watching this. Rating, based on B westerns, 6.
