| Extremely Ordinary Western Quickie
Yet another 'B' western with the word 'Fighting' in the title, 'The Fighting Buckaroo' is the usual brew of stock footage, wrongful accusations, long declamatory scenes of plot exposition (including the usual perfunctory declarations of undying love) with the actors lined up facing each other to deliver their lines, a cute kid and an incredible scrap between hero Charles Starrett and one of the bad guys that simultaneously justifies the title and wrecks the place.

The villain's gang sure are an ugly bunch, with even their otherwise dapper leader Sam Thatcher sporting an unshaven chin that seems to be part of their uniform. The most striking features of the film are probably heroine Kay Harris's chic, anachronistic 40's shoulders and hairstyle, and the rock formations around which the climactic hillside shoot-out is fought.
