The professor professes to be searching for the evolutionary missing link, but in reality he is a cattle rustler who uses his dynamite to scatter the cattle in order capture some of them.

Lots Of Scenery
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,
