Storyline

Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd), boss of the Bar 20 ranch in Texas, rides down the Camino Real in the New Mexico cattle country near Alamogordo, in response to an urgent message from his lifelong sweetheart, Nora Blake (Nora Lane), who is in serious trouble. Before he and his saddlemates, "Lucky" Jenkins (Russell Hayden) and "Pappy (Frank Darien), can reach her ranch, they are stopped by Clay Allison ('Robert Fiske (I)' qv), a cattle-rustler who is in almost complete control of the district, and wants to extend his holdings by seizing Nora's cattle and driving her out. Seeing Cassidy as a menace to his plans, he has him arrested on a trumped-up charge. Cassidy and his pals shoot their way out of the trouble and reach Nora;s ranch where they learn that Allison's henchmen have murdered her foreman, Tom Dillon (Jack Elliott), and Allison has sent for a crew of outlaws on the Texas border.

A lesser Hoppy outing. Poor plot.
18 April 2015 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

This is one of the worst Hoppy films. The plot was unbelievable and weak. The comic sidekick (Frank Darien as Pappy) was also among the worst in the series. ***Spoliers.***

Hoppy is out to help his girl friend whose ranch is being rustled and preyed upon by local rustlers-land grabbers, led by Clay Allison. For no good workable reason (from my viewpoint) Hoppy lets himself get arrested and imprisoned for trespassing (or whatever), and then he convinces Allison to put Hoppy on parole and work his time out at Allison's ranch. In short order, Hoppy sees Allison's men maybe rustling Nora's cattle. So Hoppy rides off to see Nora. (What about his parole agreement?) Meanwhile, Fred is the only witness to see Allison shoot Nora's partner (or foreman) dead. For no real good reason that I could see, Fred's mom suspects her son as involved in the murder and has the son placed in jail! None of this really matters because Allison finally decides to have his gang descend on Hoppy and everyone else at Nora's ranch, but they are beaten back and Allison is killed.

Not much of a good plot.
