Good Action in a Haunted House-Comedy-Western
16 August 2003 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Interesting but not very technically sophisticated haunted house-comedy-western set in what appears to be a genuine abandoned town in the American West. Some great riding by hero Tom Keene, good action shots involving an ore cart swung over a canyon. The scenes shot in the ghost town are rather revealing as is the mix between traditional cowboys and modern (1932) automobiles. Probably the most surprising linkage in this movie is when Tom Keene uses a cap to hide his identity when trying to foil to bad guys. I knew that I had seen the technique before -- quite frankly I think it would be a bit absurd to try to walk around or ride a horse with your left hand holding a black cape in front of your face. Then I remembered "Plan Nine From Outer Space" and Bela Lugosi's double doing just that. Would you believe that "Plan Nine" was Tom Keene's last movie! Maybe he shared that technique with Lugosi's double who finished Lugosi's role using the exact same technique. Look for Gabby Hayes (sans bead and with teeth) as the cafe owner. Not a bad story, good action, would have been better probably if made a few years later with better equipment. Recommended.
