Storyline

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. Hoppy and Johnny soon learn that Trumbull's outfit isn't the kind they want to work for, turn down the job offer, and take work with the Three-J, operated by easterner Jim Jordan and his sister Sally. Jordan is planning on fencing in his grazing land, but Trunbull swears this won't happen because, unknown to the other ranchers, Trumbull's men have been driving rustled cattle through a ...

Fun Hoppy movie
28 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hadn't seen a Hopalong Cassidy in years--then this one appeared on COZI TV--they show old movies and TV shows. It was fast paced and quite exciting with a cattle stampede to boot! Paramount released this film ( #6 in a series of Hoppy films)in 1936. Besides William Boyd as Hoppy, the film had James Ellison as his sidekick, Johnny Nelson. Ellison was quite handsome and even managed to take his shirt off twice--once to save Gabby Hayes from drowning. I think that Mr. Ellison practically stole the picture from Mr. Boyd. Mr. Ellison was later replaced in the series by Russell Hayden--who was also good, but Ellison was a better actor and very handsome.
