A period piece
"The Phantom Plainsman" is an example of the Saturday afternoon kids film. These "B-Oaters" served the purpose, at the time, of supplying product to theaters in small towns and rural areas. The fact that it was made by Republic Pictures, usually meant that at least the production values would be decent -- and they were. As with their serials, Republic Pictures placed action over script, and this film's script is silly; without any trace of imagination. I don't know how to rate a film like this. It was made for a young audience, who'd never seen television, and wanted to see an action packed Western at their local movie theater. I'd ask the question; did "The Phantom Plainsman," entertain the kids of 1942? I'd guess the answer would be -- yes, it did.
