U.S. Marshal Hopalong Cassidy is called when a town becomes overrun with bad guys. Disguised as a member of a medicine show, Hoppy discovers that the ringleader is none other than sweet li'l ol' Ma Burton.
The sixth of the Hopalong Cassidy films, with the story source credited to Clarence E. Mulford's "Mesquite Jenkins, Tumbleweed", finds Hopalong Cassidy and his young pal, Johnny Nelson, leaving their Bar 20 home range to answer a letter offering them jobs on the Tumbling-L Ranch of Big John Trumbull near Yucca. Before they arrive in town, they save an old wrangler named Windy from drowning, who has been fired on from ambush as he was delivering a valuable stud bull to the depot. Windy, whose sole trusted weapon is a blacksnake whip, tells them he works for the Three-J Ranch adjoining Trumbull's spread.

Heart Of The West has a beginning like the John Wayne/Robert Mitchum classic El Dorado. Do you remember that Wayne came to work for Ed Asner, but after finding out that Asner was the bad guy, the Duke threw in with Robert Mitchum the sheriff and the family Asner was trying to force out.
Same here. Bill Boyd and his young friend James Ellison get an offer to work for Sidney Blackmer the local Ponderosa owner. But when they find out he's the bad guy they throw in with brother and sister Charles Martin and Lynn Gabriel who are being squeezed by Blackmer.
There's some public grazing land that Blackmer has appropriated for himself. At first the thought is he's just greedy. But he actually does have some underhanded motives for trying to keep everyone else off.
Blackmer in the best Snidely Whiplash tradition has designs on Lynn Gabriel. But as usual when there's a pretty girl around to get his attention, anyone else will have to deal with Jimmy Ellison.
The climax is a cattle stampede which Hoppy turns to his advantage.
A good one in the Hoppy tradition.
