During the latter stages of the Civil War, a gang of supposed Confederates, headed by Alex Morel (Lionel Atwill), raid all gold shipments destined for Washington from Oro Grande, California.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Gem! December 14, 2007
Format:DVD
I ordered Raiders of the Ghost city with the hopes of seeing a classic western with more of adventure feel. In that respect I was not disappointed. Raiders of Ghost City was a fun filled serial with plenty of action and cliffhanger endings. The stunts were well staged and set up nicely. Everything that I look for in a well made serial.

The only problem with the film was the poor transfer. Now I'm not going to say that the DVD is not worth buying because it is a great movie and I don't see any other companies out there releasing this film. So we have what we're stuck with. The picture was entirely in a sepia tone regardless of the fact that I know that is not what the movie was filmed in. Easy fix though as I turned down the color on my TV greatly for a more black and white look. The picture was also out of frame a bit leaving out some of the credits and written intros. There also were some washing out of the picture causing large white spots where nothing could be seen as to what was going on.

However if you like this kind of movie and I know I do then those little imperfections are still worth sitting through. Especially since you can't find this any place else. At least the cost for the DVD is not too much considering the quality.

Format:VHS Tape
VCI Entertainment and Universal Pictures present..."Raiders of Ghost City" (1944) (Dolby digitally remastered), a 13 Chapter cliffhanger from an action packed Universal serial era featuring an outstanding cast with Lewis D. Collins and Ray Taylor at the helm....our story begins in early spring 1865 the war between the states is drawing towards it weary close...what plans are in place for shipping gold for the union during the Civil War...is there corruption afoot and will some secret Prussian organization led by Alex Morel (Lionel Atwill) take the gold and blame it on the Confederates...will our hero Capt. Steve Clark (Dennis Moore) and Idaho Jones (Joe Sawyer) be in harems way when their rail car is suddenly uncoupled and crashes down a mountainside...who is this mysterious wells fargo agent Cathy Haines (Wanda McKay) why has she been assigned to such a dangerous case, doesn't she know the dangers that lie ahead...never fear the writers from Universal Pictures have everything under control...watch out for the heavies Jack Ingram, Edmund Cobb and Jack Rockwell do their level best to bring havoc playing spies, smugglers, high-jackers and just all around nasty people...hopefully they will never see the light of day in another Universal serial...don't leave the theater until the final chapter is over and done with "Golden Vengeance"....just remember double thrills, chills, mystery and suspense...hitting the bull's eye with excitement...don't miss a single spine thrilling episode..return next week to this local theater for another episode of action and adventure that will keep you thrilled until the next chapter.

Under director's Lewis D. Collins and Ray Taylor, associate producers Morgan B. Cox and Ray Taylor, original screenplay by Luci Ward and Morgan B.
