Mediocre
27 January 2011 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Charged with turning the prissy English son of an old pal into a man, Billy and Fuzzy take him (as the new owner) to the supposedly haunted Hidden Valley Ranch, a move that upsets the cattle rustlers using the ranch as a gang hideout.

Another so-so entry in Producers Releasing Corporation's long-running Billy Carson series, that despite plenty of action, just sort of goes through the motions. It's not too bad if you haven't seen many of these types of westerns.

Fans of the series might not be so hot on it though. Likewise, fans of the haunted ranch sub-genre might be better served watching a few other episodes in the series, like His Brother's Ghost or Wild Horse Phantom.

As far as the cast goes, Buster Crabbe and Al St. John are okay and leading lady Jean Carlin nice to look at. There's also some good villainy from longtime heavy Charles King. However, the "English" lad is terrible, with an embarrassingly phony accent.
