Hopalong Cassidy Goes to War
The Spanish-American War has just begun and Colonel Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders need men. . . Good fighting men like Hopalong Cassidy and the ranch hands from the Bar 20. Hopalong is training his men and is ready to lead them into battle. He will be awarded officer’s stripes when he leads his men into battle, and this might be the day.
A courier from Fort Boone has come for Cassidy with orders to bring him to Major McCready on the double. As Hopalong enters the Army Fort he is greeted by Boots McCready, a young boy who thinks Hopalong is the greatest cowboy ever to ride the range. When Hopalong and the Major finish their talk little Boots wants Hoppy to show him his officer bars, but Hopalong Cassidy was not made an officer.
He was asked to delay going to war because he is the only man in Texas who can rustle up the 500 horses that the Army desperately needs in one week. Young Boots thinks that Hoppy is afraid to fight for his country and is very sad until he learns how important the horses are to the Army.
Meanwhile, one of the ranchers next to the Bar 20 refuses to help the Army in any way, and he is the kind of man who gets ahead by kicking other people down. He has a wild horse that he tries to shame Lucky, Hopalong’s buddy, into riding, knowing that the fellow would get hurt and possibly crippled by the wild horse.
Hopalong comes along just in time to stop Lucky from riding the wild stallion, and then the rogue rancher tries to goad Hopalong into riding the killer horse. When Hoppy refuses, the young boy is once again ashamed of Hopalong, thinking that he refused because he was afraid. Hoppy tells the youngster that there is a time and place for everything, and no one should goad you into doing something stupid. There is too much 'stupid' in the world, and not enough 'horse sense.' So today the mean rancher wins, but the story isn't over yet. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
