Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Haunted Trails is another of the long series of Whip Wilson westerns churned out by Monogram in the late 1940s. As before, Wilson is aided and abetted by grizzled sidekick Andy Clyde, who acts the leading man right off the screen. This is no accident: Adele Buffington's screenplay makes certain that the talented Clyde has the lion's share of the footage, and he makes the most of it. The plot concerns a group of bandits who exploit local rumors about a ghost for their own purposes. The combination of Clyde's buffoonery, Buffington's script and Lambert Hillyer's direction results in one of Whip Wilson's best vehicles (it might even have been better without the stiff and uncomfortable Mr. Wilson).
bad-guy, cowboy, good-guy
