Saving Johnny Travers
14 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jay Kirby one of Hopalong Cassidy's sidekicks has himself in a real jackpot. He escaped from a posse that's looking for him for bank robbery. Little does Kirby realize that the robbery is only part of a scheme cooked up to gain control of Herbert Rawlinson's ranch. Another part of that scheme is shyster lawyer Douglas Fowley marrying Rawlinson's niece Lola Lane.

Fowley looks like a real bottom feeder more at home in some night court in the big city than the wide open space. Still he's one of those villains you love to hate.

The Sportsman Quartet known for their appearance on Jack Benny's radio show make an appearance in the bunkhouse singing current hit Jingle Jangle Jingle. Even though Hoppy was not one of the singing cowboys some music got into his films on occasion.

Andy Clyde has a very funny sequence trying to eat a biscuit he cooked. Plaster of Paris isn't usually an ingredient for cooking.

Check out the final showdown. Kirby and Clyde nearly kill Hoppy with the rocks they're using.

Watch the film to see what I mean.
