Much of this film takes place in Joshua tree groves. Joshua trees grow in a limited area of California and Arizona, nowhere near Texas. See more »

Well, why don't you get it over with?
I'm waitin' for you to beg me not to kill yuh.
Don't make it would do much good now.
I'm not so sure about that. When a man's dead, nuthin' hurts no more. There must be somethin' that hurts worse than just killin'.

I see reviews of Hopalong Cassidy movies that denigrate them and refer to them as "average" and "another oater." well, to the kids that sat in the movies on Saturday afternoons and ate salty popcorn, they were great entertainment. They saw Hoppy travel to the mountains of South Texas and never gave a thought to the fact there are no mountains in South Texas. It's as flat as a pancake. The cactus and mesquite trees abound there and not the Joshua trees from California such as you see in Texas Masquerade. None of that mattered to us. We saw a straight arrow hero who didn't even kiss a girl. Too mushy for us kids. He stood for what is right and we looked up to him. We need another Hoppy to ride into the lives of today's kids. Too bad those kind of heroes have vanished from the movies.
