Trivia

The series' initial entry ended in 1919, but this initial sequel is set at a much earlier date as there appears to be no automobiles. See more »

Goofs

When the boxers and promoters are meeting in Barrington's office, there is a cut-in to 'Wild Man' Joe Kamatski sitting down. As there is is a character standing directly in front of him on the master shot, that would preclude any possible close-up. See more »

Quotes

Stony Brooke: [looking at the empty bank vault] Well, they sure cleaned you out, Mr. Thornton.
Lullaby Joslin: [talking positively about the hold-up] Sure used my head yesterday by not gittin' to the bank on time.
Tucson Smith: [critically] You always say the right thing at the wrong time.

Awfully good cast and director in muddled script

The Mesquiteers display a lot of personality, and Tucson Smith in particular displays a lot of his physique, but the script is rather muddled, especially in the big gun battle at the end.

Still, it is the Mesquiteers so it is very much worth watching.

Not just the boys, but the entire cast is first rate, with the great stunt man Yakima Canutt, to name one, getting credit, but being listed last.

Hank Worden, who went on to screen immortality, gets a humorous bit part, uncredited, and other great cowboy players include Earle Hodgins, I. Stanford Jolley, Wally West, Wally Wales, and Edward Peil.

The leading lady, Kay Hughes, is a lovely lass I know nothing about, but she has 28 credits here at IMDb.

There is one error in the IMDb listing of cast members: Elmer, the puppet, is actually listed in the very opening credits, right alongside Max Terhune. And fortunately, in "Ghost Town Gold" Elmer is not as intrusive as sometimes.

I saw this in a rather poor print at YouTube and might have liked it better in a better print. But I liked it and do recommend it.
