Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Trail of the Silver Spurs was Monogram's first "Range Riders" entry for 1941. As in previous episodes, the three heroes are portrayed by Ray "Crash" Corrigan, John "Dusty" King and Max "Alibi" Terhune. The plot concerns the efforts by the Range Riders to "exorcise" an alleged ghost town. It is giving nothing away to reveal that the spooky goings-on are the handiwork of half-mad prospector Nordick (Milburn Morante), who hopes to scare away all potential visitors so that he can work the local gold mine himself. Since Nordick isn't really a villain, the heroes take pity upon him and cook up a method that will allow him to come out ahead--and to entrap the film's real villain, who has been using the ghost town as his headquarters. Dorothy Short, wife of actor-stuntman Dave O'Brien, is the heroine, while future singing cowboy star Eddie Dean shows up in a bit.
