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.

Stock "Three Mesquiteers" Western
29 December 2005 | by (Western New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Played to death on New York's Channel 13 cowboy theater shows in the 1950's, "Ghost Town Gold" became one of my favorite "Three Mequiteers" westerns...right up there with "Riders of the Whistling Skull." Typical Robert Livingston - "Crash" Corrigan - Max Terhune fare with lots of action and shoot 'em up, made even more appealing with the addition of Kay Hughes as the love interest and a crazy old miner that "haunts" the ghost town using ghostly booby traps and weird sound effects to protect "his" gold. I loved it as a kid and tried to locate it for years...finally finding the videotape...and re-living my misspent youth!
