      I had seen this a long time ago, I think , but watched it again today. I enjoyed it, it reminded me a little of a type of Scooby Doo Western Style adventure. Spooky town, spooky house, people sent mysterious letters, strange going ons. Even a ghost causing trouble, well,a phantom !!! Plenty of action, great level of creepiness from the supporting cast, too. Blue Washington, was good, and I agree that you wouldn't see this type of role being played today, for obvious reasons.....

      Duke saves JW from a certain death, hanging from the cable mining car after a good fight scene !!!

      Why they used a picture from Big Jim McLain I will never know.... But I thought this was the weakest of the 6 he did for WB, with Ride Him Cowboy being the best. Although I did like Clarence, I just wish that he would've been played straight instead of as a comedic relief like most blacks were at the time. But he had good presence and he deserved way better.


      This was the 50s rerelease poster for the film, so they tried to fake everyone into thinking it was a new film.

      I watched this last week maybe for the first time ever (might have seen it years ago but don't remember). I immediately thought it was a western Scooby Doo as well. It was just as corny/creepy with a surprise, well sort of, person turning out to be the Phantom. I enjoyed it and these old Bs are the perfect length for an eliptical workout.
