Trivia

The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

A silly trifle
27 September 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a silly little B-western from Ken Maynard. The plot is strange and seems more like something you'd see from an old movie serial. It begins with Maynard being ambushed in a canyon. However, a shot rings from out of no where and he's saved. Who did this? It was THE PHANTOM!! Yes, thee is a black cloaked guy running around in the old west! And, it turns out he's got revenge on his mind--but why?! And, how does this all relate to Maynard--a guy who doesn't even know his name or his kinfolk?! You'll see in the reasonably good but very contrived finale.

Maynard seems like an odd sort of western hero in that he sure gets beaten up a lot! You know he's the good guy but certainly not in the mold of Gene Autry or Roy Rogers. No, this is a very fallible hero--and that is the best aspect of the film. But the plot and the idea of a guy running around in a cape is just silly! Not a particularly good film but not terrible--as if this is glowing endorsement!

By the way, when the film begins, get a load of the studio mascot. You just have to see it to understand what I mean.
