Movie Info

A bestselling author accepts an invitation to the "Mystery Ranch," only to find laid back shenanigans giving way to real danger in this action-packed western starring Tom Tyler. When it comes to the western, no one writes them like Robert Morris. A successful author whose fans suspect that he knows nothing about "real" cowboys, Robert is invited to the "Mystery Ranch" and senses the makings of a new bestseller. When Robert arrives at the ranch with his secretary Percy Jenkins, the real fun begins. Subjected to a series of harmless yet startling pranks designed to test his mettle, Robert and Percy attempt to one-up the ranchers by cooking up a little mischief of their own. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the joke goes awry when a gang of real-life bandits attacks the ranch.more

Audience Reviews for Mystery Ranch

This Movie Came from The Mill Creek Western Legends 50 Pack. Bob Morris (Tom Tyler) is an Easterner who writes cowboy stories. However, some real cowboys in California invite him out--to show him that his stories are inaccurate and that the REAL west was far more exciting. However, what really is going to happen is that these cowboys work for a dude ranch and want to put on a real show--one that will send lots of business their way when Bob writes about what excitement he saw during this vacation. So, to create excitement, they arrange for a fake hanging, a bucking bronco and a runaway wagon--but somehow Bob is able to handle all this like a true cowboy. Later, when Bob and his partner see a robbery taking place, they naturally assume it's also a put-on--but it's actually real and they end up getting caught up in the robbery! Can all this be sorted out? The idea is great for a B-western. Too often, films in this genre were REALLY repetitive and formulaic--but not this one. Too bad that the film is handled so poorly--so poorly that even a good idea cannot overcome the sloppy acting and direction. Worth a look if you are a very forgiving sort--otherwise, you can skip this one. 2 Stars 9-15-13
