The clean cut and fetching cowboy hero Tom Tyler stars as upstart rancher Jerry Lane in Phantom of the Range. Breathtaking western scenery clothes this dynamic and exciting film, which boasts a stoic and authentic leading man, as well as a strong supporting cast. Tyler comes to a small town looking to start a new life at a new ranch, and buys up a place that everyone thinks is haunted by the Phantom Rider. Unfazed by spooky tales, Tyler sets up shop and is informed by the heir of the former property owner that the ranch contains a large sum of buried money. Tom must then deal with the Phantom Rider, and a seemingly unconnected group of thugs who want to discover the money and are willing to go to murderous lengths to obtain it. A ghost story, treasure hunt story, and Wild West romance story all in one, Phantom of the Range scintillates from prairie to canyon.
