The seventh of the "Hopalong Cassidy" westerns, Hopalong Cassidy Returns stars, as always, William Boyd as the black-stetsoned hero. This one is a surprisingly sadistic item, in which a mysterious predator forces various ranchers off their land through rather direct means. In the opening scene, a wheelchair-bound victim is roped and dragged to his death! Hopalong Cassidy discovers that the instigator of these attacks is a woman, played by one-time silent star Evelyn Brent. She is killed in an appropriately gruesome manner by her disgruntled henchman--whereupon upstanding Mr. Cassidy shoots the killer twice at point blank range.
