The Dillon Gang is too much for Coyote Creek and even
for the statuesque blond cowboy Elmer, who rushes to summon the U.S.
Cavalry. The Stooges, who ordinarily groom horses but have recently
annoyed a commanding officer, are assigned to the uneviable duty to
go undercover dressed as desperadoes and confront the bandits....a
mission from which they are not expected to return. Moe, Larry, and
Shemp battle the gang valiantly, and Elmer makes another trip to recruit
more cavalry....but it is the haymaker right fist of lovely barmaid
Nell that ultimately fells the most notorious gang in the Old West.
Did you know that "Punchy Cowpunchers"
was filmed at the Columbia Ranch to double for the wild west?
SD: (Known dates T 2/8 to W 2/9/49). Shot at both the
Columbia Ranch and Stage X.
