Hoppy's working on the railroad
20 July 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For some reason William Boyd decided not to wear his six guns for this film Sinister Journey. It made for a rather actionless climax something Hopalong Cassidy fans are not used to.

This film has Hoppy and his sidekicks Rand Brooks and Andy Clyde answer a call from Hoppy's old friend Stanley Andrews a railroad Vice President. Things are going wrong on his railroad construction gang and he thinks the culprit is his own son-in-law John Kellogg who ran away with his daughter Elaine Riley. Kellogg he thinks is a fortune hunter.

Hoppy, Lucky, and California all met Kellogg and Riley before getting to camp and Hoppy formed a good opinion of him. Good enough that it withstood the revelation of Kellogg's prison time.

There is in fact a plot against Andrews and his family, one very carefully conceived and nearly brought off. And isn't Kellogg who Andrews should have been concerned about.

More plot than most Hoppy films, but a lot less action.
