Trivia

Kay Hughes, who played Marian Bryant, the sister of a gassed World War I veteran in the series' first entry, is recycled here as Sabina Thornton, the daughter of the town banker. See more »

Goofs

When the boxers and promoters are meeting in Barrington's office, there is a cut-in to 'Wild Man' Joe Kamatski sitting down. As there is is a character standing directly in front of him on the master shot, that would preclude any possible close-up. See more »

Stock "Three Mesquiteers" Western
29 December 2005 | by donnielee46See all my reviews

Played to death on New York's Channel 13 cowboy theater shows in the 1950's, "Ghost Town Gold" became one of my favorite "Three Mequiteers" westerns...right up there with "Riders of the Whistling Skull." Typical Robert Livingston - "Crash" Corrigan - Max Terhune fare with lots of action and shoot 'em up, made even more appealing with the addition of Kay Hughes as the love interest and a crazy old miner that "haunts" the ghost town using ghostly booby traps and weird sound effects to protect "his" gold. I loved it as a kid and tried to locate it for years...finally finding the videotape...and re-living my misspent youth!
