Lots Of Scenery
9 February 2019 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Scenery and setting carry this Hoppy entry. There's not much action til the showdown. Instead, it's loads of snow-capped southern Sierras and boulder-strewn Alabama Hills, both of which are real eye-catchers. The plot's fairly standard Hoppy-- rustlers are after Hoppy's cattle herd using dynamite as a tactic. On the other hand, they're master-minded by an intellectual scientist (Worth) instead of usual grimy thug. Several good touches, including terrific cliff-side explosion, cattle charging into the camera, and humorous opening showing great chemistry between our three heroes. Naturally, there's the girl (Lane) as eye-relief from all the ugly guys. Anyway, looks like producer Sherman popped a bundle for location filming, big cattle herd, and lots of hard-riding extras. All in all, a scenic Hoppy that more than makes up for shortage of rough stuff,
