Straightforward Hoppy fare with a few twists south of the border.
1 September 2002 | by (Sewell, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Straightforward "Hoppy" fare of revenge and murder across the border, with pals Lucky and Windy along for the ride. Some feminine treachery puts a twist on the plot, and seeing Jan (Jane) Clayton of much later "Lassie" TV fame as singing and shooting "Anita", is fun. She married Russell Hayden (Lucky) the year this was made.
