Lucky is falsely accused of robbing the local bank and assumed drowned in the river while being pursued by a posse. A grieving Hoppy takes exception to remarks made about his presumably dead young friend by local lawyer Cal Howard, and Hoppy knocks him down in public. Howard is engaged to Agnes, the pretty and personable daughter of local cattle rancher Glen Randall, who has borrowed heavily from the town bank in order to buy a herd of breed cattle. Howard's callously materialistic attitude toward his fiance, coupled with his virulent jealousy of Agnes' friendship with Hoppy, causes her to break off the engagement. The vindictive Howard pressures the bank to call in its loan on the Randall ranch and conspires to rustle the valuable herd, so that the Randall spread will fall into his hands. This is part of a larger covert plan by the avaricious lawyer to take over the entire valley on the behalf of a shadowy combine. A desperate Randall recruits Hoppy as his foreman to help him deal ...

Rustler's Valley finds Hopalong Cassidy trying to help his young friend Lucky Jenkins out of a real jackpot. The young man has been accused of a bank robbery and evidence planted at the bank against him.
The villains are the usual, a banker, a crooked ranch foreman, and a shyster lawyer all conspiring to get a hold of Morris Ankrum's ranch. The lawyer has his own plans, he's going to marry Ankrum's daughter Muriel Evens.
Ankrum this early in his career is billed as Stephen Morris. But our lawyer is played by none other than Lee J. Cobb, billed here with the traditional western sounding name of Lee Colt. Under any name Cobb is a nasty and crafty villain who has a real mean on for Hoppy.
There's a real nice shootout between the outlaws and Ankrum's men. And Russell Hayden and Gabby Hayes find a really unique way to bring a sudden halt to the shootout.
Hoppy's fans should be pleased like I was.
