Joe Weller has instigated a conflict over water rights between two ranchers. The idea is to have the ranchers do each other in then move in and take over. Hoppy and the good guys won't let this happen.

The song Silver On The Sage was introduced in 1938 in a big budget Paramount western The Texans that starred Randolph Scott and Joan Bennett. The following year it serves as the title to this Hopalong Cassidy western. In fact you can hear the song on a lot of subsequent Hoppy films.
However this film finds Hoppy turning over the herd they are selling to Russell Hayden and Gabby Hayes. But that Bar 20 herd is stolen before the buyer counts and takes possession. Hayden is on the hook for the price of the herd.
The villain of the story is Stanley Ridges playing a dual role. Very handy to have a twin when you need an alibi. Hoppy goes incognito as a tinhorn gambler to get the evidence needed.
These rustlers have quite a racket going with their twin bosses. The shootout climax is one of the better ones from Hoppy series.
Nice title song and the movie is enough to make anyone a Hopalong Cassidy fan.
