Ghost Town Gold (1936)

** (out of 4)

After being thrown out of a city, some men rob the local bank so that its president (who is also the Mayor) will come under fire of the locals. The Three Mesquiteers end up coming to his rescue by trying to track down the real crooks. Republic made fifty-one films in this series and GHOST TOWN GOLD was actually the second of the long running series. Outside the nice title, there's very little going on in this "B" Western, which features pretty much nothing but one cliché after another. If there's a prime example of a by-the-numbers Western then this here is probably just that. I think it's safe to say that this here is one of the least interesting entries in the series for a number of reason. The biggest is that Robert Livingston, Ray Corrigan and Max Terhune just weren't at their full strength in regards to their chemistry. I think the three of them lacked any charm as they went from one scene to the next and it really did come across as the trio trying to find the right touches. I thought the three of them delivered fine performances on their own but they just weren't quite clicking when it came time to have the three acting together. Another problem is that the story itself is just pretty much dead on arrival. Not once do you really care about the banker so you don't care if his name is cleared or not. You really don't care about the town and its people so again, you really don't care if their problem gets solved. The action is also pretty lacking in regards to excitement. GHOST TOWN GOLD is a film that's only going to appeal to fans of the genre but I doubt even they will find it too entertaining.
