The Dancing Dandy Dude and the Texas Crude
Okay, I wasn’t the smartest boy in school, but when Hoppy rescues a Boston lawyer on his way to South Texas, I had to scratch my head. You see, the Bar 20 is in Arizona, and the last time I checked Arizona isn’t on the trail from Boston to Texas. Oh well, I guess the movie folk use different trails.
In any case, Hoppy is off to a small cow town in Texas masquerading as a dandy tenderfoot from Boston arriving in Texas to complete the lawyer’s mission. Hoppy is dressed like an Eastern tenderfoot and talking like a sissy, and ordering a cool glass of milk at the local bar.
Ace Maxson, the owner of the bar and the instantly recognized ‘bad guy’ makes Hoppy dance as the bullets fly towards his feet. Cassidy maintains his masquerade and pretends to be a sissy-boy, dancing to the tune of the bad guy’s six-shooter.
Hoppy discovers that the bad guys in town are trying to buy all of the ranches, and they will kill the owners who don’t agree to sell. It turns out that there is oil on all the ranches, but the ranchers have no idea. Hopalong and his buddies will have their hands full fighting the night rider outlaws as they rein terror on the desert ranches of Texas. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
