Storyline

Lucky is falsely accused of robbing the local bank and assumed drowned in the river while being pursued by a posse. A grieving Hoppy takes exception to remarks made about his presumably dead young friend by local lawyer Cal Howard, and Hoppy knocks him down in public. Howard is engaged to Agnes, the pretty and personable daughter of local cattle rancher Glen Randall, who has borrowed heavily from the town bank in order to buy a herd of breed cattle. Howard's callously materialistic attitude toward his fiance, coupled with his virulent jealousy of Agnes' friendship with Hoppy, causes her to break off the engagement. The vindictive Howard pressures the bank to call in its loan on the Randall ranch and conspires to rustle the valuable herd, so that the Randall spread will fall into his hands. This is part of a larger covert plan by the avaricious lawyer to take over the entire valley on the behalf of a shadowy combine. A desperate Randall recruits Hoppy as his foreman to help him deal ...

Shorter and simpler than its predecessors, but still good
22 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Born in 1933, I began watching B westerns frequently in 1941, and therefore missed most of the Hoppy westerns when they were at their best. Because Rustlers' Valley (1937) is not as long and complex as several that preceded it, connoisseurs should not be blamed for giving it middling reviews, but compared to most mass-produced westerns of the 1930s it is still quite good, if not among the very best. It is a pleasure to correct an otherwise fine review in this list: the name of the tree-lined town may be inferred from two signs: Griggs Valley General Store and Griggs Valley State Bank. Trees also abound in the scenery through which the good guys and bad guys gallop and the cattle, so prominent in these early Hoppy movies, move along. Lucky, a fugitive from the law through most of this story, has no opportunity to flirt with the only pretty girl in the cast, but, as in some of these early flicks, Hoppy does. She is unusually cheerful, even when it appears someone is trying to kill her.
