Stolen Loot on a Haunted Ranch
9 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

The Range Busters pause to replace a member as David Sharpe decides to enlist in the Spanish American War. Rex Lease however is Johnny-on-the- spot to replace him as they search for stolen bullion on a haunted ranch.

One of the heirs is shot and killed, but before he dies spills the fact that stolen gold bullion from his uncle's gang is hidden on the ranch. Dusty King decides to impersonate the deceased heir and meets his 'cousin' Julie Duncan who is the other heir.

Glenn Strange and the rest of the gang is also looking for the stolen loot on that ranch. They've frightened off ranch hands with all kinds of tales and fake demonstrations of demon spirits. But our Range Busters don't believe in that nonsense.

This is Monogram Pictures so don't expect much, but production values were more than normally threadbare in this western where nobody with any brains would be taken in by the haunting.
