Trivia

Warner Bros. salvaged long shots of silent Ken Maynard films and used them in this film. Thus, many of the long shots of John Wayne and Duke are actually shots of Maynard and Tarzan from earlier films. See more »

Quotes

Joe Ryan: Benedict, just why are you back in town? And what are you trying to pull, up at the Mary-Ann?
Benedict: No one's been near that worthless mine for years
Joe Ryan: I'm not so sure it's worthless. You ain't hanging on here for nothing.
Benedict: Joe Ryan, your father was a bad man in this town. What are you trying to do - live up to his record?
Joe Ryan: Listen to me you old carcass, there's plenty of gold in that mine somewhere, and half of it belongs to me. And I've got a deed right here to prove it.
Benedict: Yes, and I got a pretty good idea...

This is just a fun fun western
29 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

An early Wayne western. Very entertaining and just plain fun! Wayne plays John Mason. He receives a letter prompting him to return and claim his half of a gold mine called the "Sally Anne". When Wayne returns he finds a girl … imagine that! She by chance had also received a letter.

He then finds himself taking on some bandits in a haunted mine with a crazy catacomb of tunnels, under a ghost town, complete with creepy shadows, trap doors, secret passages & even organ music. As stated above it's just a fun who-dun-it. A weird kind of mix of mystery meets western. To the best of my recollection this had never been done prior to this movie ... and even if it had it was still a bit refreshing for me.
