Goldtown Ghost Riders is not the typical Western movie. Ed Wheeler (Kirk Reily) is accused of killing Jim Granby (Carleton Young) and is brought before Gene Autry, the judge. Even though Wheeler confesses his crime, Wheeler says that he has already murdered Granby ten years ago and has served his time in prison for his crime. Wheeler and Granby built Goldtown together, but Granby blackmailed Wheeler and Wheeler thought he had murdered Granby then. If Wheeler has murdered Granby ten years ago, who was it that Wheeler murdered this time around? Can Autry prove him guilty of a crime that Wheeler has already committed and served time ten years ago? Can the laws of this gold abundant town prove Wheeler guilty? Filled with mysteries and speculations of who Granby really is, or even if Wheeler is stating the truth, Autry needs to figure what has happened ten years ago and this time around.
