Hoppy and Lucky have been called in to investigate a series of stage holdups. The robbers are taking gold from Colby's mine and Hoppy suspects it may be ex-outlaw Colby himself. When Speedy strikes gold, Hoppy borrows it and announces a gold shipment hoping to catch the gang and their leader. Written by

A pretty pedestrian entry into this long running series. Someone is hijacking the gold from a mine, can it be an ex-outlaw, now supposedly gone straight or could it be his business partner and the shady foreman that are behind it all? If you need me to answer that, you haven't watched many westerns! This plot was hackneyed and old well before this was filmed. Still, the cast do their best with the material and Bill Boyd always puts his heart into the role that he made forever his own.
There's some nice shots of the posse riding to the rescue and full use is made of the beautiful scenery of the unspoilt American western range. And there's enough gunfights and action to keep things moving along to the somewhat predictable finale.
