Riders of the Whistling Skull (1937) / The Night Riders (1939)



Michael and Pax explore the Three Mesquiteers. They talk about the history of the long-running series, then take a look at Riders of the Whistling Skull, in which Robert Livingstone, Ray Corrigan, and Max Terhune help a woman find her missing father and some lost treasure. Then in The Night Riders, Livingstone is replaced by John Wayne who leads the trio as masked vigilantes fighting an evil land baron.

It's '30s Saturday matinee pulp, but is it any good? The boys find out.

Also: Lots of Pony Express and Michael talks briefly about Western comics Manifest Destiny and Perdy.
