Lots of Outdoor Action
6 November 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Really good Hoppy for those who like lots of outdoor action. The cast gets to ride around the big-rock Alabama Hills for the whole hour, with all those scenic vistas of the southern Sierras in the background. The plot is more complex than usual. Hoppy's got to keep the Indians peaceful, beat the rustlers, help the archaeologists, and figure out who the bad guys are (there's more than one moustache).

There's more ducking around the big rocks than hard-riding or fast-shooting. But I really like the imaginative touches of an Indian altar and "ghost riders". Plus there're two pretty girls to look at, causing me to wonder how I can join the Indian princess's (Pat Tate) tribe. Anyhow, it's still a lot of fun for us old cowboy wannabe's.

(In passing—Hoppy was a fixture for years at LA's annual Rose Parade. He always made a point of riding over to the kids and smilingly doffing his hat. What a thrill for this former Front Row kid. Thanks, Hoppy.)
