Storyline

In the 10th film of the 66 Hopalong Cassidy movies, Russell Hayden makes his first (of 27 consecutive) appearances as Cassidy's sidekick/protégé "Lucky" Jenkins. The character's actual name in the many Clarence E. Mulford books that featured him was "Mesquite" Jenkins, and Hayden's role was billed in this film as Mesquite "Lucky" Jenkins, and this film was the first and last mention of Mesquite Jenkins. This initial pairing of the trio of William Boyd, Russell Hayden and George Hayes (who only became known as "Gabby" when he wasn't allowed by Paramount to carry his "Windy" moniker to Republic when he departed the Cassidy series, which makes any pre-1939 cast listing showing a credit listing for a George "Gabby" Hayes a misnomer and in error for those who don't care for revisionist film history) is the one that many western-film and/or Cassidy devotees consider the best of all the trio pairings in the series. This one finds the ranchers near a Wyoming Indian reservation suffering heavy... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Introducing Lucky Jenkins
1 June 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Hills Of Old Wyoming is significant in the Hopalong Cassidy series for introducing Russell Hayden as Lucky Jenkins as one of the two sidekicks for Bill Boyd. James Ellison who was the first young sidekick for Boyd quit the series and Hayden joined Gabby Hayes for the next few years with Boyd.

The three of them are partners in a Bar 3 ranch in this film, not working for the Bar 20. Somebody's been systematically rustling small amounts of cattle from their ranch and others and the trail seems to stop at an Indian reservation of an unnamed tribe in the film.

Russell Hayden's Lucky Jenkins was always an impetuous lad who constantly charged into situations and got himself in trouble that Hoppy would have to get him out of. That aspect is introduced in Hills Of Old Wyoming when Hayden and Hayes go onto the reservation and start 'questioning' the Indians. Of course they've got no legal right to and they get arrested by the reservation police and Hoppy has to rescue them.

But we've got a real legal conundrum here in that it's the reservation police doing the rustling and making a fool out of Indian agent Earl Hodgins and the two women who run the trading post Clara Kimball Young and Gail Sheridan. Of course when Sheridan's around, Hayden doesn't concentrate on much of anything else. That's another aspect of Lucky Jenkins that is introduced here.

Other than introducing Russell Hayden to the series, Hills Of Old Wyoming is your average Hoppy feature of no particular other significance. Still the fans of the series will like it and so will others.
