Trouble in Hell's Center

If you are a fan of Hopalong Cassidy movies you will notice the difference in this movie from the first notes of music. When the first Hopalong Cassidy story hit movie theaters in August of 1935 it was such a big hit that Harry Sherman started on this adventure starring William Boyd as Hopalong Cassidy, but the ‘formula’ for the very successful series of Hopalong Cassidy movies was not yet discovered. Besides the music, you will see a very different Gabby Hayes. Instead of being the comic relief old codger side-kick for Hoppy, Gabby Hayes is Spike, the bartender for the bad-guy Big Henry in his El Enfierno bar in the Mexican border town of Hell’s Center. . . . Spoiler Alert - Gabby Hayes gets shot and killed in this story. I haven’t taken much notice to the number of dead bodies in the typical Hopalong Cassidy movie, but I think that this story must hold the record for killing.

As our adventure opens four bad guys, headed by Big Henry, shoot and kill a young man and woman as they ride through the countryside in a wagon. After killing them, the bad guys steal their money and gold before heading back into the small town of Hell’s Center. What the bad guys do not know is that the man and woman had a young son riding with them, and he is watching them murder his mom and dad from the nearby rocks. Later Dolores, the Cantina singer in Big Henry’s bar finds the young boy and hides him from Big Henry and his henchmen. It turns out that the murdered young couple were the son and daughter-in-law of infamous Mexican outlaw El Toro, who kills and tortures just for fun. The bad guys are now in fear of their lives if El Toro should ever find out that they have murdered his son . . . . And when the bad guys discover that a young boy survived their attack, they are doubly worried. Dolores sends a note to El Toro telling him that his grandson is alive and well, and she will hide the young boy until El Toro can come and get him. Meanwhile, we discover that Bill Cassidy and his buddy Johnny Nelson are not cowhands in this episode, but are Sheriff’s deputies in Mesa City. Deputy Johnny comes upon the bandit El Toro and without knowing who he is, Johnny loans the bandit a fresh horse because El Toro’s horse has gone lame. Bill Cassidy is also roaming the countryside on the alert for the bad bandit from Mexico when his horse gets spooked while crossing a stream and Bill Cassidy is tossed off his horse and into the water. It turns out that Bill Cassidy has landed in a patch of quicksand and is slowly sinking beneath the water as the quicksand sucks him ever closer to death . . . . If only his buddy Johnny would come by and save him . . . . But no, Hopalong Cassidy’s luck has gone from bad to worse . . . . The man on horseback who approaches and discovers the Sheriff’s Deputy slowly sinking to his death is the notorious El Toro, the most cruel and sadistic bandit in the West. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
