At 82 minutes, this is the longest of the 66 Hopalong Cassidy films, running 28 minutes longer than the shortest, Bar 20 (1943). Interestingly, character actor Earle Hodgins appeared in both films. See more »

Borderland finds Hoppy on assignment from both the Texas Rangers and the Mexican Rurales headed by Earl Hodgins and Trevor Bardette respectively. He has to locate and destroy the Mexican outlaw known only as 'The Fox'. The problem here is that no one knows what he looks like.
In order to that Hoppy has to shed his good guy image and become a real louse. Part of the cover is to not tell both Gabby Hayes and Jimmy Ellison and make them think he's gone bad. The better to infiltrate the Fox's gang.
The Fox is one clever and ruthless villain. He literally hides in plain sight. So does Trevor Bardette as Hoppy's contact.
Borderland is a well done Hopalong Cassidy western with Bill Boyd facing a very determined foe.
