"Buster Crabbe has always been one of my favorite actors. Unfortunately, his Westerns have suffered neglect over the years. I have several on VHS and when this DVD version appeared, I snapped it up...only to discover that the quality really sucks. The picture is dark and murky. And in several cases there were so many splices and missing frames I finally gave up. I'd give this half a star if I could. Maybe someday someone will dig out pristine copies or the negative (not likely!) and we'll get to see these gems as they were meant to be seen. Meanwhile, stay away from this turkey!"
Good Chemistry Between Crabbe and St. John

"Before I proceed, I want to point out that my copy lists "Fuzzy Settles Down" but on the disc itself is "Wild Horse Phantom." The other three titles are on the disc as listed.
Buster and Al St. John had great chemistry which is the significant factor that lifts these poverty row films to a very entertaining level. VCI did a fine job (as much as possible) in restoring these movies."

"Received the oaters in excellent condition and on time. Buster Crabbe (aka Flash Gordon) was my favorite childhood hero. These films represent the beginnings of good westerns. Buster Crabbe (as Flash Gordon) was the trend setter for all Star War type features. Great Veiwing."
