Burton is after Clark's ranch. He gets the banker to refuse to renew Clark's note and then sends his men to rustle his cattle. Hoppy is Clark's new foreman and is on to Burton's scheme. But just as he learns of the rustling and is about to go after the gang, the Sheriff arrives and arrests him for hiding Johnny who has been accused of robbery. Written by Maurice VanAuken <>

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.
