RAIDERS OF GHOST CITY-a good Multi-Chapter Movie shown in the Movie Theaters in 1944.

Here’s a 13 Chapter Old West Movie from 1944 I’m watching right now and I’m really enjoying each Chapter.

At the height of the Civil War, a gang of supposed Confederates, headed by Alex Morel, raid all gold shipments from Oro Grande, California, bound for Washington. Captain Steve Clark is recognized as a Union Secret Service agent by Morel’s accomplice Trina Dessard, along with his friend Idaho Jones, is ambushed in the baggage car and sent to almost certain death when the car is un-coupled and plunges down the mountainside.

Leaping to safety, Idaho and Steve report to Colonel Sewell in Oro Grande, and Idaho introduces himself as a Wells Fargo detective to Cathy Haines the Oro Grande company agent. Steve and Idaho learn that the Morel raiders are only posing as Confederates, and their headquarters are at Morel’s “Golden Eagle” saloon. He also discovers that members of the gang use old European coins with the date “1752” as identification.

In a raid on the hideout, Steve’s brother Jim is killed by the gang. The next victim is Confederate Army Captain Clay Randolph who has discovered that Morel is connected with a group of Prussian spies who have been using the stolen gold to initially finance Prussia’s wars but later to buy Alaska from the Russian Empire as a “club over Canada”; hed gives Steve a clue before he dies. The date 1752 of the recognition coins is explained as the date of Frederick the Great‘s Testament that supposedly gave instructions how Prussia would take over the world.

The clue leads Steve to a San Francisco dive owned by Abel Rackerby, who thinking he has Steve in his power, exposes the ring’s activities and operation methods. Aided by the San Francisco Secret Service, Steve escapes and returns to Oro Grande where he and Idaho round up the spies.

Raiders of Ghost City is a 1944 Universal movie serial set in California during the American Civil War.
