Saving money and reputation
19 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Three Mesquiteers find themselves in Ghost Town Gold trying to save the reputation of the mayor and bank president of a small boom town. After the bank is held up during a night robbery Burr Caruth's reputation is on the line. There's a big prize fight being held that night and the bet money is being held by the bank.

Speaking of the prize fight Ray Corrigan has to get into the ring as one of the fighters backs out. That makes it real personal for the Mesquiteers.

The key to the whole situation is desert rat Milburn Morante who holds up in a nearby ghost town. The bad guys hide the loot, but he finds it. It all makes for a bit more plot than one usually finds in a B western.

Best part of the film is the climax race back to town with the stolen money before the bank is supposed to open. I do love some of the tactics employed by the Mesquiteers to slow down the pursuing robbers.

I think you'll enjoy it too.
