Burton is after Clark's ranch. He gets the banker to refuse to renew Clark's note and then sends his men to rustle his cattle. Hoppy is Clark's new foreman and is on to Burton's scheme. But just as he learns of the rustling and is about to go after the gang, the Sheriff arrives and arrests him for hiding Johnny who has been accused of robbery. —Maurice VanAuken <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Solid Oater Mix
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.
