Entertaining Hoppy oater. It's got everything a former front row kid likes, which means lots of action, goofy comedy, and a pretty girl without mushy kissy-face. The only minus is an absence of dramatic scenery, but then these budget products seldom leave greater LA. The plot's familiar-- bad guys aiming to get all the area ranches. But they have to get past our three good guys first. A big plus is getting Douglas Fowley as the main bad guy; he's so good at being mean, as his lengthy career shows. And catch Audie Murphy look-alike Jay Kirby as Johnny, the kid. Of course there's also Andy Clyde furnishing the laughs, especially with all the over-weight ladies. But please, whatever you do, don't send me to his school of dance or cooking. Hoppy too is in fine form. Amazing how Boyd could go from hard-eyed stare to jolly guffaw in just a few seconds; so eat your heart out Clint Eastwood. All in all, it's an hour of solid oater entertainment, thanks to series producer Harry Sherman, Bill Boyd, and of course Topper.
