Hoppy Goes In The Timber Business
15 June 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Lumberjack starts with the killing of a newlywed husband on his wedding day minutes after exchanging vows with Ellen Hall who is niece of Buck Peters played by Herbert Rawlinson foreman of the Bar 20 ranch. And Rawlinson saw the one of the killers. Hopalong Cassidy gave chase and got the other one.

The bad guys who are Douglass Dumbrille, Hal Taliaferro, and Francis McDonald are a real trio of bottom feeders who had hoped to acquire this land at public auction. The fact that Hall is now the heir spoils their plans. The other thing was doing their evil deed to someone acquainted with Hopalong Cassidy. That brings Bill Boyd and sidekicks in to straighten the situation which they inevitably do.

The land Hall has is rich in timber and that's why these guys want it so bad. Hoppy becomes her logging foreman in order to save the day.

Andy Clyde as California Carlson get a little romance himself in this film with Ethel Wales who is Rawlinson's sister and Hall's aunt. A lot of the situations here are pretty funny, especially when parson Earl Hodgins almost marries the two.

Lots of good action in Lumberjack in an unusual setting for a western.
