Overview

Synopsis

Vanishing Riders
Hiding behind the intriguing title is yet another low-budget Bill Cody Western from poverty row company Spectrum. Looking somewhat the worse for wear, the former silent screen cowboy starred as Sheriff Bill Jones of Cactus City who adopts the young son (Bill Cody, Jr.) of a slain outlaw (Roger Williams). Leaving his job behind, Bill and the kid begin a new life in Silver City, a ghost town "haunted" by a gang of cattle rustlers, the "Vanishing Riders" of the title. Written by the prolific Oliver Drake, Vanishing Riders featured yet another former silent screen hero, Wally Wales, as the leader of the outlaw gang. The film was produced at a ranch belonging to poverty row entrepreneur Trem Carr. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Frontier Days
Written (under the pseudonym of Jimmy Hawkey) and directed by Robert F. Hill, this very low-budget Western from poverty row company Spectrum starred former silent screen cowboy Bill Cody and his real-life son Bill Cody, Jr.. Everything of course being relative, Frontier days, filmed at majestic Lone Pine, was perhaps Cody senior's best sound Western although he looked emaciated and a tendency to act overly coy with the ladies ladies became grating at times. Cody played an agent for the Well's Fargo masquerading as The Pinto Kid, complete with pinto horse Chico and fancy pinto vest. Trailing a gang of stage robbers, he is falsely accused of killing rancher Franklyn Farnum. Farnum's daughter, Ada Ince, believes in him though, and he proves his innocence saving the girl from crooked banker Wheeler Oakman and his gang of desperadoes, the real murderers. Surprising B-Western devotees everywhere, the usually so jovial Robert McKenzie, he of the Andy Devine-like gravel-voice, turned out to be one of the Bad Guys this time around -- billing himself "Bill McKenzie" for the occasion. Ancient-looking Lafe McKee got to play the girl's grandpa instead of her father for a change and 8-year-old Billy, Jr. managed to pretty much stay out of harms way. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
