Storyline

Render, posing as an European Baron, arrives at the Colonel's ranch where he plans to steal some of his fine race horses, rename them and then race them. Hoppy arrives at the same time and immediately becomes suspicious of the Baron. Winning money from the Baron at poker, he marks the bills. He is robbed but as suspected, the money reappears and it is the Baron that has it. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

A touch of the continental
21 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Morris Ankrum who appeared in several Hopalong Cassidy movies does this one with a touch of the continental. He arrives at Wright Kramer's horse farm with a nice European accent passing himself off as Baron. This baron is really a horse thief, but he's got a pair of quality race horses involved here and he wants them to disguise and help fix races and clean up on bets.

At the same time young Jan Clayton arrives saying she's Kramer's long lost niece. Coincidence or not? It's up to Hopalong Cassidy and Lucky and Speedy to sort it out, or at least Hoppy to and the others follow his lead.

That might not be easy for Lucky Jenkins. He's more impulsive and headstrong than normal in this Cassidy feature. In real life Russell Hayden was married to Jan Clayton at the time.

A good Hoppy feature with Hayden especially standing out.
