Poor Hoppy. You would think the guy would deserve a vacation and he's taking some time away from the Bar 20 to go on a trip to New York. Central Park, Barnum's Museum, and Delmonico's, all that the Big Apple had to offer then. But an appeal from Gwen Gaze the new owner of a mine to look into the death of her father and Hoppy can't turn her down. In fact she's got a bit of a thing for that gallant knight of the plains.
What's happening is that a neighboring mine owner has tunneled into Gaze's mine and has been pilfering large amounts of ore. That's a dirty little secret he wants to keep. But Bill Boyd smells it out and he concocts a plan to catch them in the act.
Part of it is for Gabby Hayes to put on a deaf act as a night watchman. It's a pretty funny bit, worth seeing the film for.
Plus a nice action filled shootout at the end. All you could desire from a Hopalong Cassidy film.
