U.S. Marshals Nevada Jack McKenzie and Sandy Hopkins ride into Big Piney Basin at the request of Ann Jordan, daughter of a rancher who has been killed and whose cattle have been rustled. At Ann's home, they find Ted Connors, the only surviving member of the Connors brothers, the other two having been killed the previous night. Nevada rides into town and discovers it is run by Matson and Judge Kelbro and that it was Matson's gang that killed the Connors and Ann's father. Matson believes that Ted, who can identify some of the gang, is dead but sends his henchmen out to investigate. Sandy, working as a swamper in the poolroom, overhears a plot to rustle the remaining cattle, and rides out to warn Nevada and Ann. Nevada and Sandy round up the gang, Matson and Kelbro are turned over to the authorities, and Ted and Ann are planning their marriage as Nevada and Sandy ride off to new adventures.

Phony judge
16 September 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Ghost Guns finds US Marshals Johnny Mack Brown and Raymond Hatton on yet another mission. This times it's the Piney Woods Basin where a lot of landgrabbing and cattle rustling is going on. But no ghosts in the tradition of the Hollywood B western giving a film a title that has nothing to do with the story.

What is interesting is that there's a phony judge in the mix. Outlaw leader John Merton has Frank LaRue installed as a phony circuit court judge to bend the law his way. Fortunately our heroes are up to those tricks.

The leading lady here is Evelyn Finley who lives with her aunt Sarah Padden on a ranch being threatened. Ms. Finley was a stunt woman and trick rider and we get a bit of her talent displayed as a coda at the end of the film.

Brown and Hatton did a series of films as gallant US Marshals fighting corruption and crime in the west. This one holds up well enough for western fans of today.
