To maintain his vast ranch holdings, Henry Steele holds Jane, the daughter of his deceased business partner, against her will. Stalwart ranger Bob Sanborn rescues Jane in a riding incident and is invited to stay over at the ranch by the malevolent Steele, who catches on immediately to the fact that Sanborn has been asked by Jane to help her escape. Steele escorts Bob off the ranch just after giving the order to his vicious ranch hands, Mudo and Tonto, not to let him leave alive. Written by

I was interested in seeing this film for one reason and one reason alone, Charles Middleton. "Flash Gordon" is without a doubt one of my all-time favorite films, and I was curious to check out some other work by the actor who played Ming the Merciless, one of the greatest villains in cinema.
"Mystery Ranch" did not disappoint, and I highly recommend this creepy, gothic western to anyone who appreciates unusual films. Parts of this movie are more like a horror film than a standard western, and there are some great, atmospheric scenes. The ending of the movie is also quite memorable.
"Mystery Ranch" is included in the book "Forgotten Horrors," which documents many poverty-row talkies of the early 30s. Both the book and this movie are worth seeking out.
