Archibald and Bad Luck at the Black Buttes
As our adventure opens it is spring at the Bar 20 ranch and young cowhand Lucky Jenkins has picked a bunch of wild flowers for the daughter of the ranch owner. Windy Halliday is painting the Bar 20 Ranch logo on his chow wagon. Hopalong Cassidy joins them and as Lucky and Laura wander off to flirt with each other Hopalong stares into the distant hills. He tells Windy that he is still saddened by the incident in the Black Buttes last year.
When they were herding some cattle through the hills a band of rustlers stampeded their herd and stole most of the cattle. A few good Bar 20 ranch hands were stomped to death in the stampede, and Hopalong is hoping that one day he will have the chance to go into those bad luck hills again and maybe even the score with the outlaws. Some folk think that we should be careful what we wish for, because our wishes and dreams often become reality.
Soon Buck Peters, owner of the Bar 20, tells Hopalong that he needs to get a thousand fat cattle to the Army within ten days. Hopalong smiles and tells Buck that there is no way to get a thousand cattle to market in ten days, but Buck assures him that it is absolutely necessary to get them there in ten days – if Hoppy will heard the cattle through the rustler filled Black Butte hills.
Hopalong Cassidy now has what he wished for, another confrontation with the rustlers of the Black Buttes. But once again it looks like the rustlers will win and Hopalong will not. Death and bad luck may once again be the outcome for Hopalong Cassidy and the cowhands of the Bar 20 Ranch. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
