    Plot Summary
    A Confederate troop, led by Captain Lafe Barstow, is prowling the far ranges of California and Nevada
    in a last desperate attempt to build up an army in the West for the faltering Confederacy.
    Because the patrol saves a stagecoach, with Johanna Carterr as one of the passengers,
    from an Indian attack, and is marooned on a rocky mountain, it fails in its mission
    but the honor of the Old South is upheld.

    Errol Flynn's last western.

    In 1949 Ronald Reagan complained to Warners about some of the films he was assigned to and asked to do a western. The studio agreed if he would bring them a good story. Reagan brought them "Ghost Mountain" by Alan Le May, author of "The Searchers". Despite their promise to him, they cast Errol Flynn in the lead.

    The pistols used were not made until after the Civil War.
