Some of Agatha Christie's mysteries might have been the inspiration for the plot of Unexpected Guest. This Hopalong Cassidy western where Hoppy and Lucky Jenkins travel with California for the reading of a will where Andy Clyde is one of six heirs to a ranch that has more debts than anything else according to lawyer John Parrish.
But Parrish whose whole demeanor screams shyster has been milking the estate with the connivance of one of the heirs. As the heirs start dying like they do in Ten Little Indians it's up to Hoppy to investigate and find out who's the accomplice. Especially with Rand Brooks accused of murdering one of the heirs.
A lot less action in this Hoppy flick than usual. Still it was acceptable to the Saturday matinée kids and a grownup or two.
