A young man needing a job, sees a Help Wanted sign on a Cemetary Gate. He applies and gets the job. What he is curious about is the Old Man is retiring from the job, stays around to help him. Evidentially it was a Night Watchman's job as when it comes the night time, he needs all the help he can get from the old man! Old Wild West characters come as the darkness falls and it takes LEAD BULLETS to put them down. It seems as if they were a comical but deadly ghost, but I may be wrong about the comedy part. I remember it was a hotly contested night or nights, before the old man tells him he has learned all he needs to know and leaves him to fend for himself, or either the Battle is won! I know that's not much to go on, but one other thing I seem to remember is he is riding his bicycle when he first sees the Help Needed sign. Not much to go on, but the Old Caretaker knew the outlaws by name, and if I remember correctly, how they must be shot to kill them! I am 65 YOA and don't remember as I should, but I WANT THAT MOVIE! I am trying to keep a list now and buy movies I have enjoyed for my Grand Children to watch and hopefully enjoy as well as I did. I really got a kick form this one! And it is not the Frank Luz Movie-Dead in Tombstone 1 or 2. It definitely tends towards Westen, Horror, or Sifi and may be leaning toward comedy. The old man is an often seen actor, seems I remember him leading a Boy Scout Troop, a Sergeant in the Army or other rough, Trim built actor in similar roles of command. I wish I had more, but if one of you movie buffs would try, I am certain you can come up with the name of the movie. It's not all that old. I see 1970s and 1980s movies on Comcast!
