As this Hopalong Cassidy adventure opens we watch a steam locomotive rumbling along the tracks as it slows a bit and rings the bell. A freight line employee comes out of the train station and waits on the platform as someone on the passing train tosses a large canvas mail bag onto the platform.
Just as the stationmaster is bending over to pick up the mail bag a shot rings out and the man drops to the station platform, dead as a nail. From the corner of the station, outlaw Dirk Mason, played by Robert Mitchum, runs across the platform and grabs the mailbag. He jumps on his horse and rides swiftly into the hills as townsmen rush to the station and shoot at the fleeing outlaw.
Sheriff Hopalong Cassidy is on the outlaw’s trail and catches up to the outlaw just as the outlaw is asking his boss to hide him until Hoppy is gone. The outlaw’s boss refuses to hide his henchman and when Hopalong captures the outlaw, the boss, a respected townsman, shoots and kills his henchman before the henchman can tell the law who he is working for.
Hopalong and his side-kicks are in for a rough time and before this adventure ends well Hopalong will be chased by the law because they were framed for rustling cattle, and there is no proof to vindicate them. It sure looks like Hopalong Cassidy is headed for a hangman’s noose this time. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
