Once a Bar 20 man always a Bar 20 man
18 July 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Henry Hall former Bar 20 hand and now owner of his own spread is having his cattle systematically rustled. Which means that Hopalong Cassidy and the rest of the Bar 20 ranch can be counted on to help.

It's agreed upon that it's Dick Curtis and his band that's doing the rustling. But finding them and catching them with the stolen cattle won't be easy, Curtis's gang has got a nice hideout in the hills and no easy way to reach them.

Bill Boyd and Andy Clyde go undercover with the help of Charles Middleton who Hoppy arrested back when he was a US Marshal. Of course in the end the bad guys are dealt with in Bar 20 fashion.

Stick To Your Guns gave Jennifer Holt her film debut though she was billed as Jacqueline Holt. She and Hoppy's young sidekick Brad King are paired together.

Enough action in Stick To Your Guns for any western fan.
