Fake professor
4 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Hopalong Cassidy got into so many situations just being an all around help to those in need that more often than not his actual day job as foreman of the Bar 20 ranch is barely an afterthought. Not so in Hopalong Rides Again where he's actually on his own job when dealing with bad guys. And bad guys on his job are cattle rustlers.

This gang is headed by a very unusual, but deadly villain played by Harry Worth who says he's a paleontologist which explains why he's out on the range all the time looking for fossils. Worth starts a landslide with dynamite as Hoppy and the Bar 20 crew are driving a herd through a pass where such incidents have happened before.

My favorite scene where he exposes Worth is when our scientist finds a skull and declares it a missing link. Hoppy knows better and says it's from an outlaw he shot and proceeds to dig the slug out of the skull. Worth is no better an anthropologist than a paleontologist.

A good day's work for Hopalong Cassidy.
