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 ...

Mediocre at best Hoppy film.
25 April 2015 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

I found this to be a mediocre Hoppy film, as compared to the two dozen or so I have already see.. Usually I find the Hoppy films with Ellison and Gabby Hayes as among the best, but not this one. The copy I saw on Cozi TV had terrible sound. The woman who played the heroine, Lynn Gabriel, was the worst sounding one I have ever seen in a Hoppy film; I see she only appeared in two films throughout her "career." And Sidney Blacker (bland and sluggish as he usually is too often) came across as the one of the worst acted and appealing villains in a Hoppy movie. The plot was decent but no shakes; same for the other supporting actors. That didn't leave too much to enjoy.
