Tex And The Ghost Train
5 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Other than Tex Ritter singing a song The Utah Trail in this film, Utah has absolutely nothing to do with this western. It concerns Ritter and his two ranger sidekicks Snub Pollard and Horace Murphy and them going undercover to investigate a 'ghost train' which maybe smuggling a lot of rustled cattle into Mexico. Which ain't nowhere near Utah.

Ritter masquerades as the notorious Pecos Kid, not that he successfully infiltrates the gang, but it does allow him to hang around their haunts and pick up information. I have to see the outlaws do have an interesting scheme afoot with the railroad and of course it is an inside job of sorts.

Pollard and Murphy are a pair of funny dudes, Pollard made his comedic bones in films as a Keystone Kop. And Tex keeps them around for laughs. But why anyone would want to work with these guys on a serious case is beyond me. I don't think the Saturday matinée kids could figure it out either back in the day.

Nice B western from the independent and shortlived Grand National studio where Ritter was their featured western player.
