Starring Tim McCoy, Claudia Dell, Walter Miller, Wheeler Oakman, Jimmy Burtis
Directed by Sam Newfield
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)
A cowboy working for the Department of Justice tries to track down a gang robbing mail planes who are able to knock them out of the sky with a strange invention.
Western star McCoy and his ten-gallon hat seem a little out of place in this modern-day story with technology including airplanes, short wave radios, and the electricity-sapping device of a brilliant scientist. Nevertheless, the film's a charming bit of diverting fun, economically directed by Newfield on what must have been a tight budget. Despite the title, there's not a ghost to be found anywhere, nor a patrol really either.
