superior Hoppy movie
8 July 2014 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

This movie is generally a treat. Better than most B-movies, it has a superior cast. I particularly liked child actress Charlene Wyatt. She was so sweet and darling. I'm surprised she didn't have a bigger career. Maybe it had to do with her leg brace, which was never commented on in the movie. James Ellison was a fine sidekick for Hoppy. One of the best moments in the movie was the times Hoppy and Ellison rescued each other in the same way. Perhaps the best feature in the movie for Hoppy fans was seeing him act mean and nasty to all his friends, due to his undercover assignment.

Three minor criticisms are (1) at the start of the movie a lot of time was wasted in the top Ranger brass having Ellison arrest Hoppy and bringing him into headquarters so they could ask Hoppy if he would agree to go undercover as a badman to investigate the bad guys. It seemed like a waste of time to me. What if Hoppy said "no" to the assignment? Ellison didn't even ask what he was arresting Hoppy for. Why not just invite Hoppy down? (2) I guess they do this in B-movies like this, but the Fox, who incognito pretends to be addle minded so he can gather information to use for his criminal plans, exposes himself to his large gang. In real life, one of them would turn him in. (3) Unbelievable the way Hoppy simply rides out into the vast desert and easily comes upon the gang, their hideout, clues, a shot bad guy and the scene where Ellison is about to be shot.
