The Last Chance Inn, the main locality in this latter-day Hopalong Cassidy Western, certainly lives up to its name. A prospector has mysteriously disappeared after spending a night there and now Lucky Jenkins' (Rand Brooks) prospective "uncle-in-law," another guest, has vanished as well. Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) locates the missing man's body in a mine but when he returns with the sheriff, the dead man has performed yet another disappearing act. Just before retiring, in the same room previously occupied by the victims, Sheriff Thompson (Forbes Murray) reveals the name of his prime suspect: Larry Potter (Bob Gabriel), the outlaw brother of the inn's wheelchair-bound proprietor (John Parrish). But will the sheriff survive the night or disappear just like the previous occupants? Like so many of the Hopalong Cassidy Westerns, the oddly titled Dead Men Don't Dream was filmed on location at Lone Pine, CA. Leading lady Mary Tucker had previously acted under the moniker of Mary Ware. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
Undercover Man was the first of the "Hopalong Cassidy" series to be released by United Artists rather than Paramount. William Boyd and Andy Clyde return as saddle pals Hoppy and California, while Jay Kirby is cast as their partner-in-adventure Breezy. This time, Hoppy and company take on a gang of outlaws who've been plying their trade on both sides of the US-Mexican border. The plot is thickened by the presence of a mysterious masked rider who's been impersonating both Cassidy and Mexican police official Gonzalez (Antonio Moreno). Most of Undercover Man is an advertisement on behalf of the "good neighbor" policy promoted between North and South America during the War years. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
Stick to Your Guns
Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) and his buddies Johnny (Brad King) and California (Andy Clyde) take on a gang of rustlers in Stick to Your Guns. To throw the bad guys off the track, Hoppy and his companions pretend to be rustlers themselves and infiltrate the gang. Their mission is complicated when June, the heroine, takes it upon herself to go rustler-hunting, placing her directly in the line of fire. June is placed by Jacqueline Holt, daughter of Jennifer and sister of Tim; in her later western appearances, she billed herself as Jennifer Holt. Stick to Your Guns was the 41st entry in the "Hopalong Cassidy" series, with 25 left to go! ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
The winning streak of superior Hopalong Cassidy westerns continued with 1943's Colt Comrades. In this one, Hoppy (William Boyd) and his saddle pals California (Andy Clyde) and Johnny (Jay Kirby) use a large amount of reward money to buy their own ranch. But despotic Jebb Hardin (Victor Jory), who controls the local water rights, makes life difficult for our three heroes and their ranching partner Lin Whitlock (George Reeves). When Hoppy proves a bit too tough and resiliant for Hardin, the villain begins plotting and planning the hero's hasty demise. The film's best moments include an elaborate confidence scam, with California as the sucker and Wildcat Willy (Earl Hodgins) as the suck-ee. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
Three Men from Texas
The three men of the title in this superior B-Western are Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd), Lucky Jenkins (Russell Hayden), and, making his series debut, grizzled old California Carlson (Andy Clyde). Carlson is the braggart cook of the Gardner outfit, a gang preying on defenseless ranchers, but when apprehended by Texas Ranger Hoppy, the old fool admits to having overstated his famous exploits. The bemused Hoppy takes California along to his namesake state, where Lucky is having a tough time bringing law and order to Santa Carmen, a community terrorized by greedy saloon proprietor Bruce Morgan (Morris Ankrum). Always the hothead, Lucky is determined to show Hoppy that he can handle things himself without any help. A bullet in the shoulder settles the matter once and for all, however, and the three work together to capture Morgan and his gang of cutthroats. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
