Partners Of The Plains finds Hopalong Cassidy and young protégé Lucky Jenkins signing on to get in shape a new ranch that some English people have bought. John Warburton over from across the pond seems nice enough, but young Gwen Gaze and her aunt Hilda Plowright act like they are to the manor born. Hoppy really has to put her in her place.
Still she's intrigued by Bill Boyd because no one has ever treated her quite like that before. The owners also are bothered by rustlers headed by screen villain Al Bridge who has some history with Hopalong Cassidy.
The film also seems an audition for Harvey Clark to replace Gabby Hayes as part of the trio. Clark had his moments as Baldy, but he died later that year.
This film is recommended for the way Hoppy puts Gwen Gaze in her place, western style.
