Juvenile Western star Buzz Barton, as Red Hepner, and grizzled sidekick Frank Rice once again took on the bad guys in this pleasant B-Western produced by FBO. Chased by a gang of rustlers, Red and Toby (Rice) hide in the ghost town of Indigo, where they meet Betty (Jeanne Morgan), another refugee. Betty's father has been killed and the family ranch has been taken over by the nasty Sullivan gang. At the roundup, Betty is kidnapped by Santa Fe Sullivan (Jay Morley), and it is up to Red, Toby, and Betty's foreman (Arnold Gray) to recover the girl. They do that by dressing up as ghosts and goblins, scaring the bejesus out of the bandits.
