Border Patrol ★★1943

Another installment in the Hopalong Cassidy series. This time there's a villainous owner of a silvermine to reckon with. A man so low he's abducting hapless Mexicans as they cross the border, forcing them to work his mines. Hoppy is saddled with the task of persuading him that the town ain't big enough for the both of them. Robert Mitc-hum makes his perfectly forgettable film debut as one of the bad guys. Not one of the best in the series, but plenty of action. 63m/B VHS, DVD . William Boyd, Andy Clyde, Jay Kirby, Russell Simpson, Claudia Drake, George Reeves, Duncan Renaldo; D: Lesley Selander.
