Best "Hoppy" movie thus far
13 October 2000 | by (Dunstable, Ma) – See all my reviews

I have seen through the satellite so far 38 out of 66 Hopalong Cassidy westerns. This is by far the best one with not only lots of action but Hoppy is not afraid to pitch in with the workers and not wear his customary black outfit. He is seen with a checkered shirt and white cap most of the time. I would recommend this episode to anyone who has not seen a Hoppy movie.
