When gold mine owner Stan Barton (Matty Kemp) realizes his silent partner
Murdopck (George Douglas) is using his mine to whitewash the gold he has gotten
from several heists, he threatens to call the police - even though he knows
he's in it kneedeep as well, though tthrough no fault of his own.
But Murdock wouldn't be a good bad guy wouldn't he take all his man and try to stop Stan after he has so openly announced his plans. But when they
chase him through the plains, Stan gets unexpected help from all-round good guy
Alamo (Monte Rawlins) and his wonder dog Boots, so they can shake off their
pursuers eventually. andwhile Stan heads for the mountains, Aloamo makes a
stop at Stan's grandma's (Dot Karroll), wher he also meets Stan's fiancée
Carol (Betty Burgess) and the ranchhands Tuney (Art Davis) and Dumpy (Sonny
Lamont) - and when Granny tells him about the Masked Phantom that once roamed
the countryside upholding law and order and announcing his presence by
throwing a knife with a skull engraved on the handle, that gives Alamo an idea,
and soon he dresses up as the masked phantom - complete with mask (duh !),
cloak and knife with a skull on its handle - and strikes fear among the
evildoers, which are Murdock's men of course, who have in the meantime not been
idle and captured Stan.
However, Alamo - in Phantom disguise - together with Boots, Tuney and Dumpy soon free Stan,
and they even frighten Murdock enough that he decides
to give up his operation and with his men and the rest of the gold make a
getaway ... but that is when our heroes steal the truck with the gold, and a
carchase through the prairie follows, that is only decided when Granny and Carol interfere with their carriage, driving Murdock's car off the road ...
Adventures of the Masked Phantom has some quite accomplished action and nice outdoor photography, however the actors are rather below average,
storytelling is rather weak despite some silly plottwists, and the story
itself can best be descirbed as a little curiosity ... so yes, it's fun.
