Wild Bill Elliot in “Phantom of the Plains”

February 20, 2013


I was counting on this being another entry in the beloved but scarce genre of horror westerns.  I was wrong.  It’s kiddie stuff.


Nothing wrong with that.  It seems that the Red Ryder series is pretty much aimed at the kids, especially when Little Beaver tags along.


Some folk will claim that the entire oeuvre of B-Westerns from the thirties and forties is for the kiddies.  I would disagree and ask proponents of this thesis to compare this film with any of the other films on this site.

Thank God, Little Durango didn’t catch on.
