Storyline

With the local vigilantes unable to combat the lawlessness, Forbes sends for Hoppy. Dry gulched on the way, Hoppy realizes the bad guys were tipped off and he, Lucky, and California arrive posing as bad men. Hoppy suspects Logan and sets up a silver shipment to trap him. When the silver disappears, Hoppy looks like a double crosser and is trouble. Not only has his identity been revealed sending gummen after him, but Lucky is about to be hung as an accomplice.

Cowboys: Great Fun for All Children at Heart
29 May 2008 | by (working in Movieland) – See all my reviews

This enjoyable film was vintage William 'Hopalong Cassidy' Boyd. This film was produced at the height of Boyd's energies and vigor. He shows us many action packed stunts, great cowhand characterizations, and some memorable fast draw gun handling. The supporting cast is full of memorable character actors of the war years. Andy Clyde as sidekick 'Californian Carlson' will be recognized from his many early comedy shorts acting with the likes of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. This Hopalong Cassidy has an edginess that comes directly from the author of the Hopalong Cassidy book series. This edginess adds greatly to the plot suspense and drama of this film that latter 'Hopy' films tend to lose. Which is a shame. This film is a gem and very watchable for giving us a slice of movie production during the war years. And enjoying Boyd during the time of his powerful screen presence that started a cowboy memorabilia craze.
