The commander of the Mexican border patrol (Duncan Renaldo) asks Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) and sidekicks California (Andy Clyde) and Johnny (Jay Kirby) to investigate the disappearance of a number of Mexican citizens in a Texan silver mining town called Silver Bullet. His acquaintance Inez LaBarca (Claudia Drake) however, whose fiancé Enrique (George Reeves) is among those who disappeared, immediately distrusts Hoppy and company just as she has learned to trust all Yankees, so she goes after them, and soon finds them leaning over the dead body of a Mexican, concluding they have shot him (which they didn't). Soon enough, Hoppy and co arrive in Silver Bullet - where they are immediately arrested by mayor Orestes Krebs (Russell Simpson) and his (Yankee) friends who simply don't like strangers, and before long, they are accused of murder ... and when Inez LaBarca arrives in town and testifies against them, they are almost immediately sentenced to death by hanging.

However, Inez soon grows suspicious about Silver Bullet and asks Orestes Krebs to give her a tour of the place, including the mines, and Krebs, taken in by her charms, grants her her wish - but not before seeing to it that his Mexican slave workers are hidden away in an abandoned cave. Inez however soon finds a trace of Enrique and begins to see the truth ... so she persuades Krebs to let her prepare the last meal for Hoppy and co - and this way smuggles a gun into their cell. Hoppy and co of course soon break free, invoke a revolt among the Mexican slave miners and ultimately see to it that Orestes Krebs and his gang get their just desserts.

A young Robert Mitchum plays one of Krebs' henchmen.

 

As with most Hopalong Cassidy films, this is a solid B Western, but at the same time it's really nothing special, not much more than a production line product with little in terms of surprises, interesting plottwists and setpieces. But at least it's solid entertainment.
