A little fun and frolic
19 March 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I think Bill Boyd had a lot more fun toying with Rand Brooks and Andy Clyde about taking a little time for a vacation from the Bar 20 than he did when he actually got to Mesa City. Because when they got there Hoppy, Lucky, and California get hip deep in a bank robbery or at least the solving of it.

This Cassidy feature has a lot more humor than most, it almost plays like a comedy. Not quite though because Hopalong Cassidy was still a most serious cowboy hero to the youth of the nation. It all involves Andy Clyde spending some money for a new suit and a suitcase to pack it in. It gets switched with the suitcase the robbers hid the loot in. Hoppy baits a most clever trap to get the outlaws.

In keeping with the times over in Mesa City one of the characters comes into town driving one of those newfangled horseless carriages. Hoppy says it's the way of the future, but California is both curious and intimidated by the contraption.

One of the better films in the latter part of the Hopalong Cassidy series.
