In an engagingly strange hybridization of science fiction and western films, Ghost Patrol plants cowboy hero Tim McCoy in the middle of a bizarre mess: airplanes keep disappearing over an unremarkable stretch of land. Simultaneously Claudia Dell, the daughter of a missing scientist, figures out that her father’s latest invention could be used to bring down the airplanes. Both McCoy and Dell will have to contend with sinister gangsters who are using Dell’s father’s ray gun to shoot down any aircraft! McCoy is a treat, as always, and Ghost Patrol is a camp sensation with all its whizzing and whirring gadgets intermixed with spurs and cowboy hats. Actually, the contraptions in the film were made by Kenneth Strickfaden, who worked on movie electronics for his career, including the freaky scientific equipment in the original Frankenstein.
