Product Details

Sideshow sharpshooter Billy Donovan (the legendary Johnny Mack Brown), while staging a demonstration in a Texas settlement, is approached by rancher Jean Halloran (Sheila Manors) who needs help in disposing of a "phantom" sniper who has already killed her brother and seems intent upon driving her brother and her crippled stepfather off the land. The superstitious townsfolk believe the intruder is a ghost that haunts an abandoned mine. Donovan accepts Jean's challenge, disclosing an agenda of his own. Untraceable gunfire continues to plague the rangeland when Donovan stumbles upon a tunnel leading from the mine. He follows a mysterious character to a hidden doorway which opens into the basement of the Halloran ranchhouse! Johnny Mack Brown delivers one of his more winning characterizations in Desert Phantom as an easygoing dude who proves to be a vengeful frontiersman at heart. The ghostly element lends the right touch of weirdness to a story that works fine otherwise as a naturalistic account of a blood feud nearing its moment of truth.
