    Ghost-Town Gold

    ★★★

    GHOST-TOWN GOLD was the second of 51 (!) Three Mesquiteers westerns released by Republic in a mere seven years (!) between 1936 and 1943.

    This trio made 14 movies…

Jonathan Haze, the star of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, wrote the story and screenplay, which was originally titled MONSTERS FROM NICHOLSON MESA as a tribute to AIP head honcho James H. Nicholson. Bruno ve Sota, whose Corman credits include A BUCKET OF BLOOD and THE WASP WOMAN, directed the film, his third and last as a director. INVASION OF THE STAR CREATURES is worse than any…
