Quite an operation
19 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Answering a call from Jay Kirby who has settled in a nearby area with a ranch and along with others is having his cattle systematically stolen with no trace, Hoppy and California come from the Bar 20 when summoned.

As part of his plan Hoppy and California go to work for Victor Jory whom we know right away as a villain. But Jory is only part of the picture.

Jory has got quite an operation going with a whole gang of cattle rustlers among them future screen legend Robert Mitchum. It all involved a spy among the ranchers and a played out old gold mine.

Best in this Hoppy feature is George Givot who normally is in lighter roles on the screen. He plays a miner long thought to be dead, but actually living as a hermit in his old mine and gone stark crazy with the loneliness and the dark.

Definitely one of the better Hopalong Cassidy films.
