| Their jobs are on the line
This Texas Rangers western from PRC films has our rangers Jim Newill, Dave O'Brien, and Guy Wilkerson sent in on a job of guarding a money shipment for a local shylock Kurt Fabian whose headquarters is in a western ghost town.

It's robbed however and even with O'Brien's dad being the Ranger captain their jobs are on the line. Fabian is a real shylock, this was money to repay him for financing an irrigation project, but Fabian was in on the robbery.

Then Fabian falls out with the men he hired among them veteran western heavy Dick Curtis. Fabian is a real snake though you even find yourself rooting for Curtis.

Spook Town is badly edited and losing a bit of additional footage for television trimming didn't help. Some rather low brow comedy with Guy Wilkerson and Harry Harvey, Sr., as an old prospector and a mule make this one tolerable.

Still it's far from coherent.
