Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Returning to the scenic splendor of Lone Pine's Alabama Hills, Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) tries to help retired entomology professor Alonzo Larson (Joel Friedkin) and his daughter Anne (Elaine Riley), who have purchased a seemingly worthless piece of land, The Paradise Ranch. Larson has paid crooked land agent Bentley (Kenneth MacDonald) $5000 for the arid range but when Hoppy discovers the possible presence of silver on the property, Bentley and his cohort Gerald Waite (Cliff Clark), the town banker, try to null and void the sale in a rather violent manner. False Paradise was the 11th of 12 Hopalong Cassidy Westerns produced by William Boyd for United Artists release.
