Hunting the old miser's treasure
29 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tom Tyler stars in The Phantom Of The Range, a western from poverty row outfit Victory Pictures. In this film Tyler buys the ranch of an old miser whose granddaughter Beth Marion he's taken a liking to. With cash on the barrel head he buys the ranch out from under the old miser's neighbor Forest Taylor.

Taylor has hired a cowboy to ride around in a Ku Klux Klan like bedsheet to scare off any intruders. Sad too for his sake that Tom Tyler doesn't scare or fool so easily.

Sammy Cohen Jewish character actor plays a gentlemen's gentlemen who hires out to Tyler. Soledad Jimenez plays a treacherous housekeeper in Taylor's pay.

The film plays more like a cheap mystery than a western and it had possibilities not to be realized in a poverty row outfit.
