Lived A Miner, 49er
26 April 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Hoppy is on his way heading to New York for a vacation. However, there's trouble at a mine owned by the widow of a friend of his, so it's up to him, Gabby Hayes and Russell Hayden to sort out matters in this, the 19th of the long-running series.

The regulars are in their usual form in this one, with Gabby Hayes particularly amusing, but Gwen Gaze as the widow is poor in her line readings and it is up to the usually stolid William Boyd to go even quieter in his scenes with her to avoid overwhelming her. For the rest, it is a typically well produced effort, with decent camera-work Russel Harlan. Fans of the series will have a fine time and newcomers to B westerns will find it amusing.
