Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
The Ghost Rider remains a typical independently-produced Gower Gulch Western that refuses to travel a straight line from A to B. Both the opening and the finale belong to cowboy crooner Jack Kirk, who warbles "Ridin' Up That Rocky Trail from Town" and "The Old Chisholm Trail." In between the songs, Franklyn Farnum takes control of things his own way, ridin' and shootin' with the best of 'em, well aided by fellow oldtimers Lloyd Ingraham, Lafe McKee, Denver Dixon (aka Victor Adamson), Edward Coxen and sundry other longtime Gower Gulch regulars. Which leaves precious little time for nominal heroes Rex Lease and Bobby Nelson, the "Rough Riders" of the series title. But just because a B-Western holds a few surprises doesn't necessarily mean that it is very good. And The Ghost Rider, truth be told, isn't very good.
