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.
A group of unlikely traveling companions find themselves on the same stagecoach to Cheyenne. They include a drunken doctor, a bar girl who's been thrown out of town, a professional gambler,... See full summary »
"Hopalong" Cassidy, "Lucky" Jenkins and "Speedy" are driving a herd of Bar-20 mustangs to Bluesky, to be delivered to Jeff Chapman, operator of a stagecoach line. They come upon a stagecoach, which has just been looted of silver bullion by "Smiley" and his singing outlaws. The Bar-20 men give first aid to Jeff, who was shot during the robbery, and "Lucky" drives the stagecoach to town. There, "Lucky" is hard smitten by Jeff's daughter, Shirley, but she is in love with Neal Holt, who also has designs on her father's mail-carrying contract. Holt's foreman, "Twister" Maxwell, secretly works with "Smiley" and his gang, tipping them off on gold and silver shipments. Hold and Cassidy get into an argument over the merits of the Bar-20 mustangs versus Holt's pure-bred Morgans and the end result is a match race, with the stage contract as the stake. Written by

I gave this 5 out of 10, the worst Hoppy movie I have seen so far. As others have said, it moved slowly, especially with the three songs. I big downer is Julie Carter (the heroine), bad in so many ways, I'll be kind and not list them. Not surprising that she appeared in only about a dozen works, most of them as uncredited. As others pointed out here, it is novel, to say the least, that the SOLE bad guys/killers were the amusing-friendly-looking singing cowboys. One far-fetched thing was the girl hiding in one of the coaches during the stagecoach race, though it was important for the plot. Another unusual thing (that I would rate as good) is that all the main characters ended up as honest friendly good guys, reconciling at the end. That made the film easy to take and amiable.
