    D: 2 stars (out of 5)

    Follows Border Patrol and Hoppy Serves a Writ in the Hopalong Cassidy series. Hoppy and his deputies buy a ranch and settle down, only to run up against a crooked cattle baron played by Victor Jory.

    Weakest of the three Cassidy films I’ve watched so far. Lots of filler shots, lingering takes, and Clyde’s flat slapstick. That said, Mitchum shines in his meatiest (albeit shortest) part in the series thus far, playing yet another outlaw grunt.
