Hoppy leads the" troops" in a Range War
14 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wiliiam Boyd returns in this fast-paced , well written early entry in the Hopalong Cassidy series. Boyd was wonderful as always as the black-clad hero, with Russell "Lucky" Hayden a fine sidekick.

In this one, Hoppy goes undercover to expose the bad guys who are fighting railroad expansion through the open range. Glenn Strange co-stars as does Britt Wood.

The early Hoppy films were the best and this one is very good. Millions of kids looked up to Hoppy, who always fought fair and stood his ground. The script, cast and production values here are exemplary.

Highly recommended....... A fun film !
