Hopalong Cassidy and his sidekicks Lucky and California come to the aid of Professor Joel Friedkin and daughter Elaine Riley who've just bought a seemingly worthless piece of property to settle down and ranch on. But there just might be silver on the property. It will take a lot of money to mine it before a profit can be shown. Still there's a potential Comstock Lode on the place.
And land agent Kenneth MacDonald and banker Kenneth MacDonald want that land back real bad and do what they have to to get it back. Of course Hoppy and his sidekicks triumph in the end.
Friedkin was playing the nutty professor who left the serious thinking to his daughter while he and California go out chasing butterflies. He was a science professor and I could never quite wrap my head around the concept that Andy Clyde would have any kind of acquaintance with scholar no matter how wacky. Andy's comedy was a bit more forced here than usual.
