Storyline

It is 1937, but the life out West has not changed much. The boys are working at the Wyoming ranch of Captain Marvin herding horses which he sells to Kurt Redman. Marvin will not sell any horses to any army, but the boys find out that Redman is a German agent shipping the horses directly to the Third Reich. When Marvin tries to stop Redman, his son Tad, who is studying medicine in Germany, is arrested and held hostage. Marvin must fire the boys as the sneaky German agents take over the ranch, but the boys will not give up their attempt to stop them. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

A period piece
10 June 2005 | by (Ky.) – See all my reviews

"The Phantom Plainsman" is an example of the Saturday afternoon kids film. These "B-Oaters" served the purpose, at the time, of supplying product to theaters in small towns and rural areas. The fact that it was made by Republic Pictures, usually meant that at least the production values would be decent -- and they were. As with their serials, Republic Pictures placed action over script, and this film's script is silly; without any trace of imagination. I don't know how to rate a film like this. It was made for a young audience, who'd never seen television, and wanted to see an action packed Western at their local movie theater. I'd ask the question; did "The Phantom Plainsman," entertain the kids of 1942? I'd guess the answer would be -- yes, it did.
