Storyline

Judy McCoy, a fortune teller with a circus, learns she has inherited some property and heads west to collect. When she arrives in the desert ghost town, she learns that a stipulation in the will is that she has to return the property to the rightful owners, an Indian tribe, before she gets the remaining inheritance. A gambling ring, led by Honest John Richards, will gain possession of the town if it is not returned to the Indians. The latter believe the town is haunted, because of the schemes of Honest John, and do not want it. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Judy in Nevada
2 November 2016 | by magicshadows-90098See all my reviews

Judy plays a fortune teller who owns a magic whisky jug which foretells the future. Allen Jenkins plays her partner and it's his job to keep her out of trouble. A telegram arrives stating Judy's grandfather has died. His lawyer (Charles Halton) requests her presence in McCoys Gulch, a ghost town near Reno, Nevada. Halton informs Judy she has inherited $250,000 but there is one stipulation. She must return McCoy's Gulch to the natives who originally owned the land.

Judy's quest to acquire her inheritance will not be easy. Halton is in cahoots with a gambler (Alan Bridge), who wants to turn the ghost town into a casino. Bridge plans to foil Judy's quest by making the natives believe McCoy's Gulch is haunted so they'll want nothing to do with the land.

There are some interesting little side plots. The native elders are portrayed as the traditional Hollywood character, but the youngsters speak and act like any American and play in a swing band. Guinn Williams plays Bridge's henchman, but he finds Judy irresistible and switches allegiances. Robert Dudley plays Judy's grandfather, who is beckoned from Heaven on many occasions to help Judy out of jams.

It's all pleasant nonsense. The plot is fairly slim and there are not enough laughs during the 65 minutes. But as one would expect the cast is very good. My favorite bit has Jenkins disguised as a Mexican tycoon wanting to invest in the casino.
