Description by OLDIES.com:
His Brother's Ghost (1945, B&W, 47 minutes): Bandits are terrorizing border towns, killing ranchers and robbing their homes. Billy Carson has been investigating the criminals and learns of a plan to raid his friend Andy Jones' farm. Although they are prepared to take on the gang, there is a shootout and Andy is killed. With Jones out of the way, two outlaws are sent to rob his abandoned ranch during the night. When Carson catches them in the act, he is outnumbered, but after the ghost of Andy mysteriously appears, they make a run for it. Carson and Andy's "ghost" conspire to scare the bandits out of hiding in this haunting western tale. Starring Buster Crabbe, Al "Fuzzy" St. John Charles King, Karl Hackett, Archie Hall and Roy Brent. Directed by Sam Newfield. Screenplay by George Milton.
Shadows Of Death (194, B&W, 59 minutes): A gang of crooked gunslingers disrupt a new railroad being built through the village of Red Rock. Sheriff Fuzzy Jones, who is also the town judge (and barber), sends for help from his friend and former partner Billy Carson (Buster Crabbe). Working together, Fuzzy and Carson hunt down the gang, and put the town of Red Rock on the map. Starring Buster Crabbe, Al "Fuzzy" St. John Dona Dax, Charles King, Karl Hackett and Archie Hall. Directed by Sam Newfield. Screenplay by Fred Myton.
Two Westerns combine on this release.
HIS BROTHER'S GHOST: Andy Jones (St.John)--while on his deathbed--sends for his look-alike brother, Jonathan (St.John), aka Fuzzy Q. Jones.

Entertaining Double Feature

I found His Brothers Ghost / Shadow of Death, a double feature by Buster Crabbe, an entertaining western. While not my favorite western star, he still turns the tide on the bad guys. They sure don't make 'em like this anymore..
