A good scheme doesn't fool for Hoppy for long
8 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In a distinct minor league entry in the Hopalong Cassidy series Hoppy and Lucky Jenkins answer a distress call from old friend Britt Wood about a series of robberies of gold shipments. The outlaws have a marvelous scheme for hiding their stolen loot and it involves former outlaw Minor Watson as a potential fall guy.

Although suspicious initially this outlaw scheme can't fool Hopalong Cassidy for too long. He sets an ingenious trap that almost doesn't work thanks to the blabbing of Britt Wood.

Between Gabby Hayes and Andy Clyde the Cassidy series had Britt Wood as the old timer sidekick for Hoppy. But Wood never really took with the fans which was why he was replaced.

Case in point, during the final shootout with the outlaws and Hoppy and his posse, Britt Wood gets one outlaw and then spends the rest of the time trying to carve a notch in his rifle. I mean really, that was more stupid than funny. No wonder they replaced Wood with a far more colorful Andy Clyde.

Future B picture cowboy hero Eddie Dean has a small part in the film as well, but sings not a note.

If there are any Britt Wood fans out there, this one's for you.
