Overview

Filmed back-to-back with Rip Roarin' Buckaroo, this low-budget Western starred the darkly handsome Tom Tyler as Jerry Lane, a drifter who comes to the aid of a beleaguered female would-be rancher. Arriving from Santa Fe to establish her claim to her late grandfather's property, Jeanne Moore (Beth Marion) finds the place apparently haunted by old Hiram Moore's ghost. It is all a ruse, of course, concocted by greedy neighbor Brandon (Forrest Taylor), who wants the old man's treasure -- a half-million dollars in gold hidden somewhere on the property. Jerry Lane outbids both Jeanne and Brandon at the auction, hires a cockney butler, Eddie (Sammy Cohen), and invites Jeanne to stay at the ranch. One of Brandon's accomplices, Perdita (Soledad Jiminez), infiltrates the household in the guise of a maid, but it is Eddie who finally locates the treasure, which a magnanimous Jerry insists rightfully belongs to Jeanne.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
Although reportedly made for a measly $8,000, Phantom of the Range benefits from a couple of very good performances and glorious location filming at Lone Pine's famous Alabama Hills. Soledad Jiminez, in a role reminiscent of her appearance in the classic The Cat Creeps (1930), is especially good as the nosy maid and Tom Tyler is his usual no-nonsense self. Tyler was to make eight Westerns for independent producer Sam Katzman's parsimonious Victory Pictures, Phantom of the Range being the only one to make a statement in a crowded field of States Rights' Westerns.
