Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) and his sidekick Lucky (Russell Hayden) are called to a mining town by their friend Speedy (Britt Wood) after the local stage carrying gold shipments has been robbed several times - and interestingly only when carrying the gold of Colby's (Minor Watson) rich mine. At first, Hoppy is eager to investigate, but his enthusiasm quickly cools of when he recognizes Colby as an outlaw he once fought. And even though Colby claims he has gone legit, Hoppy finds that hard to believe and objectively, the circumstantial evidence speaks against Colby.

Hoppy only changes his mind when Colby's business partner Ackerman (George Anderson) seems to be a bit too eager to persuade Colby to employ Hendricks (Roy Bancroft), Ackerman's second in command, as his new foreman, and instead Hoppy takes over as Colby's foreman. As it soon turns out, Hoppy's hunch was right, it is really Ackerman and Hendricks who are robbing Colby's gold shipments, and they are using a dried up mine of their own as a cover. So Hoppy makes sure that the next stage carrying Colby's gold is held up once more and that the outlaws get away with the gold with no blood spilled on either side - and then he closes in on Ackerman's mine with a posse, which leads to a giant shootout, a duel between Ackerman and Colby (which Ackerman wins) and finally, a one-on-one fistfight Hoppy versus Ackerman ... and guess who wins this one.

 

It's an ok B-Western, but it also lacks invention and is thus little more than a routine production - so expect no surprises.
