Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Australian film favorite Chips Rafferty is virtually the whole show in The Phantom Stockman. Rafferty plays the Sundowner, a "good bad man" who robs from the rich and gives to the poor -- after keeping a slice of the loot for himself, of course. Aligning himself with heroine Kim Marsden Jeanette Elphick, The Sundowner (Rafferty) routs a gang of cattle rustlers and hunts down a murderer. And he does it all in 67 minutes, so the audience can get home early and happy. Featured in the cast of Phantom Stockman is famed Aboriginal painter Albert Namatijira, as "himself." For unknown reasons, the film is often omitted from the official printed resumés of star Chips Rafferty.
