  7705 The Town that Vanished!
·The Black Rider starring

Notes: Supernatural elements: Spanish colonial town inhabited by ghosts reappears on the anniversary of its destruction. Various characters refer to a group of Mexican bandits as "chili eaters," "frijole guzzlers," and "greasers."

·The Black Rider starring

Notes: Black Rider battles prejudice when townspeople attack a wagon train of "Morman" (i.e., Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) settlers bound from Ohio to Utah. He opines that the townspeople "forgot all the teachings of the Bible," and tells them that "America wouldn't be the land of liberty without the different kinds of people, races, and religions who came from all over the worlds to live in peace and democracy!"
