Trivia

The plot and scenes of this 1942 movie are identical to the Hopalong movie entitled "Rustlers' Valley" made in 1937. The script action follow almost word for word and step for step. The character names are changed, but their vocation and role in the story are the same (banker, lawyer, etc.). In the 1937 movie Windy (George "Gabby Hayes") and Lucky (Russell Hayden) were Hopy's sidekicks. See more »

Not one of the better Hoppy films
7 May 2003 | by (Long Island Motor Parkway) – See all my reviews

Hoppy starts out dressed all in black (a good sign), but later switches to a sports jacket (but with his regular steer clasp necktie, a bad sign). There's some good action here, but unfortunately Hoppy misses a good portion of it. During the biggest gunfight of the film, Hoppy stays in a cabin holding three baddies at bay, thereby missing all the action of the gunfight. Can someone tell me why the Sportsmen Quartette has FIVE members?! The dance sequence was repeated in a later Hoppy film. Interestingly, Hoppy answers a question about Topper (his horse) by saying "I don't know much about his past." This film is slow moving, much of the comedy misses the mark, & the film ends up being rather dull for a Hoppy movie. By the way, the film runs 59 minutes, not 69 minutes as the box claims. I rate it only 4/10.
