The Phantom Plainsmen is a 1942 Western directed by John English. Tuscon Smith (Bob Steele), Stony Brooke (Tom Tyler) and Lullaby Joslin (Rufe Davis), known as "The Three Mesquiteers," are farmhands on a 1937 Wyoming ranch reminiscent of the Old West. With tensions brewing between the nations of the world in the lead-up to World War II, ranch owner Cap Marvin (Charles Miller) refuses to sell any of his horses to any army, believing that his animals are better suited for farming. Horse broker Kurt Redman (Alex Callam) assures Cap that he will respect his wishes concerning the animals, but instead secretly ships the horses overseas to serve the German army. The Three Mesquiteers uncover Redman's plot, and Cap breaks the deal with Redman. But when Cap's son Tad (Richard Crane), studying abroad in Germany, is placed in "protective custody" by the Gestapo, Cap is forced to continue the sale and fire the boys, replacing them with Redman's German cronies. The Three Mesquiteers are not defeated so easily, and soon devise a plan to set things right.moreless
