| One feisty schoolteacher
After selling off some Bar 20 cattle Hoppy, Lucky, and California run into some Borrowed Trouble when the rivalry between two saloon owners takes an interesting twist. Borrowed Trouble is stolen from our cowboy heroes by the performance of Anne O'Neal as one feisty schoolteacher who has it in for one of the saloon owners.

Seems as though his place during the daylight hours is quite the fascination for her pupils especially those just starting those pangs of puberty. She emphasizes to Hoppy that John Parrish's place is too much for her to deal with and she's going to close it one way or another. All while telling Hoppy that she's no kind of blue nosed reformer though she sure looks like she belongs in Carry Nation's army.

Can't go any farther because this story does take an interesting twist. Let's say that some forensic evidence tells the tale to Hopalong Cassidy who O'Neal insists upon calling William.

Some nice scenes with Hoppy and the school kids show why he was such an idol among America's youth and Andy Clyde teaching a bunch of kids all smarter than him is a hoot.

One of the better of the later Hopalong Cassidy films. All owing to Anne O'Neal.
