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
The Texas Rambler
Written by genre specialist Oliver Drake, this overly complicated B-Western from Gower Gulch company Spectrum featured Bill Cody as "The Rambler," a cowboy who promises a mysterious masked stranger to look after the welfare of pretty Catherine Cotter. The girl is arriving from the East to take possession of her inherited share in a ranch besieged by cutthroats out to steal the property. "The Rambler," proposes to buy Catherine's share in the ranch for much more than the market value but she refuses. To prove that her prospective suitor, a slick lawyer (Roger Williams), is in reality an unscrupulous crook, "The Rambler" pretends to be a member of a gang of rustlers, easily gaining the man's confidence. Then to everyone's shock, Catherine's presumed dead uncle (Earle Hodgins) not only reveals himself to be the masked stranger but that "The Rambler" is in reality the son of his dead partner and the heir to the other half of the ranch. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
