A New School Marm's Come To Town
31 July 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Taking time away from battling rustlers ever trying to steal Bar 20 stock, Hoppy, Lucky, and Windy have to do some juvenile disciplining because hatchet faced Emily Fitzroy has the kids running wild on her.

The group is led by Dickie Jones as Artie Peters, nephew and eventual heir to the Bar 20 ranch. The rest of the kids is made up of the Robert Mitchell Boy's Choir who you might remember were a similar discipline problem for Barry Fitzgerald in Going My Way.

Well Barry got Bing Crosby and Hoppy gets a pretty new school teacher in Evelyn Venable. She's got all the Bar 20 hands in heat, especially Windy and Lucky. Even old Gabby Hayes. She'd like to corral Hoppy though and this film is closest Hopalong Cassidy ever got to romance.

Sad to say though the whole business really did interfere with the main plot about tracking the rustlers down. I will say though the head of the gang will be something of a surprise though with the limited running time, cast of characters, and the general familiarity with B westerns, fans should figure it out.

Now if Hoppy had gotten Father O'Malley..........................
