Hills of Old Wyoming

In the 10th film of the 66 Hopalong Cassidy movies, Russell Hayden makes his first (of 27 consecutive) appearances as Cassidy's sidekick/protégé "Lucky" Jenkins. The character's actual name in the many Clarence E. Mulford books that featured him was "Mesquite" Jenkins, and Hayden's role was billed in this film as Mesquite "Lucky" Jenkins, and this film was the first and last mention of Mesquite Jenkins. This initial pairing of the trio of William Boyd, Russell Hayden and George Hayes (who only became known as "Gabby" when he wasn't allowed by Paramount to carry his "Windy" moniker to Republic when he departed the Cassidy series, which makes any pre-1939 cast listing showing a credit listing for a George "Gabby" Hayes a misnomer and in error for those who don't care for revisionist film history) is the one that many western-film and/or Cassidy devotees consider the best of all the trio pairings in the series. This one finds the ranchers near a Wyoming Indian reservation suffering heavy losses because of cattle rustlers that leave signs that the Indians are the culprits. Hopalong Cassidy and his pals, Mesquite "Lucky" Jenkins and "Windy" Halliday buy the Bar Three ranch in the territory, and Cassidy suspects Andrews, the deputy government agent in charge of the reservation, of being the head of the rustlers. When Lone Eagle, a half-breed secretly working with the gang, is found murdered, Andrews incites the Indians to make war on the white men. Cassidy, as the leader of the ranchers, gains the confidence of the Indian chief by pointing out that Lone Eagle was "half-bad because he was half-white", and with the help of an Indian scout proves that Andrews killed Lone Eagle. The Indians then join forces with the ranchers in a Cassidy-led mounted charge against the rustler's stronghold, with the effective agitato score written by Lee Zahler for the earlier "Borderland" as the stirring background music.

Shirley Kaye is the vivacious daughter of Egerton Kaye, president of the great Union Central Railroad. The latter holds his position through his descent from "Pirate" Kaye, who founded the line, rather than through any executive ability of his own. Shirley is queen of the most exclusive Long Island set, and as clever as she is lovely to look at. From the West comes T.J. Magen, a rough but lion-hearted financier, who buys the house next door to the Kayes. Magen cares little for society, and the elaborate household which their wealth forces them to support is a constant worry to his simple and unassuming wife. But the daughter, "Daisy," yearns, with all her heart to break into the society and swim where Shirley Kaye reigns supreme. T.J. and his younger associate, John Rowson, who, incidentally, hates all women, especially Easterners, secure a majority of the proxies of Union Central shareholders. Believing that new blood would improve the finances of the U.C, they determine to oust Egerton Kaye, the figure-head president, at the next directors' meeting. With breaking heart Kaye tells his daughter of the impending blow, which means not alone the loss of his position but also the loss of the family interest in the road. Shirley, angered at the conspiracy, rises supremely to the emergency. She uses her wiles on T.J., dickers with him for his daughter's social position and agrees to give Daisy her heart's desire if he will ally himself with the Kaye interests. She wins the allegiance of Magen, but Rowson, believing her to be a cold-blooded seeker after money and social position, abruptly severs his connections with the venture and leaves for the west. In the end Shirley goes after him and proves herself as capable in love piracy as in the realm of high finance.

Susan, a young girl, the support of her old uncle, earns her living in Madame Millet's fashionable shop. She almost loses her position through her rebuff of the advances of Madame's son, but the arrival of a rich customer renders he services as model necessary. The customer, Mrs. Luckett, a parvenu, struggling desperately to get into society, is struck by Susan's beauty and ladylike bearing, and when a Countess, whom she intended to use as an entering wedge into society, fails to appear, she prevails upon Susan to assume the role of Countess for a night. Susan is a great success and society goes mad over the titled lady. Mrs. Luckett is delighted and insists that Susan continue to play the role. At first Susan refuses, but Mrs. Luckett's pleas and the sudden death of her uncle cause her to change her mind, and she decided to go through with the part. As the Countess, Susan wins the heart of Clavering Gordon, a wealthy and attractive young bachelor. Mrs. Luckett had hoped to "land" Gordon as husband for her daughter, Ninon, and she resents Susan's rivalry. She tells Susan that the disappointment of losing Gordon is killing Ninon, and urges her to go away. Though now deeply in love with Gordon, Susan decides to sacrifice her own feelings to save Ninon. She is about to leave when La Salle, Mrs. Luckett's scheming social secretary, tells her that Ninon is a confirmed drug fiend, and would only ruin Gordon's life. He persuades Susan that she owes it to Gordon to marry him, and save him from Ninon and at last Susan is won over by his arguments. Just before the marriage ceremony, the scheming secretary reveals his true motives. He demands a large sum of money from Susan on penalty that, if she refuses, he will reveal to the assembled wedding guests that she is not a Countess, but a poor working girl and an impostor. Susan is dismayed. Determining that she will go no further with the deception, and scorning the secretary, she rushes into the midst of the wedding party and confesses all. Before the astonished Gordon or any of the other guests can stop her, she disappears. Seeking to forget he sorrow and unhappiness, Susan becomes a nurse and by her sweet unselfishness, wins the love of all whom she meets. After Susan disappeared, Gordon searched in vain, and finally despairing over the results and giving up all hopes of ever finding her, her marries Ninon, in the hope of reforming her. His hopes are vain, for with the years Ninon has grown continually worse, until she has become a shattered wreck. Susan is called upon to nurse her, and though town with conflicting emotions, when she learns that Ninon is the wife of Gordon, the man she loves, Susan tries desperately to save the drug-crazed woman. After a fierce struggle, the maddened Ninon succeeds in blinding Susan with a pair of scissors and then flings herself from the window to her death in the court below. Gordon meets the blinded Susan, and after a brief courtship, the two are married. In their great love they are rendered doubly happy by indications that Susan's sight is about to be restored.

Doris Moore is the daughter of a minister living at a small country town a few hours' distance from New York. She helps her father in his work among his congregation, teaches in the Sunday school and plays the wheezy old organ in the church. The household is thrown into a mild state of excitement on receipt of a letter purporting to come from an organ supply company in New York, but which in reality is from a band of crooks who use this as one of the fraudulent schemes whereby they obtain money from the unwary. The letter offers to supply a beautiful pipe organ on receipt of an installment of one third of the cost, the balance to be paid on time. The matter is laid before the deacons and they decide to consider the offer. The minister writes to the organ company and the chief of the crooks, Harry Leland, a handsome, dashing man of the world, arrives and explains in glowing terms the advantages of the organ. While waiting for the deacons to collect the first installment of two hundred dollars, Leland pays considerable attention to Doris, who is much fascinated by him, representing as he does a totally different type of man to what she has been used to. In the meantime, the crooks in New York have received information from out west that Will Lake, a young eastern college man who in two years has made a fortune of fifty thousand dollars, is returning east, and will stay in New York for a week. They decide to try to blackmail Lake on his arrival and at once communicate with Leland, who replies that he will return immediately as soon as he gets the organ money. Leland has become attracted by the freshness and beauty of Doris and decides to lure her to New York and then make use of her in the crooks' nefarious schemes. He protests violent love for her and proposes marriage, and Doris consents. Immediately after receiving the two hundred dollars from the deacons, he approaches Doris as she leaves Sunday school and with well-simulated despair tells her he has received very bad news and that he is threatened with ruin and begs her to go to New York with him as she alone can save him. After much persuasion, Doris' scruples are overcome and she returns with Leland who takes her to the boarding house run by 'Frisco Kate, a house which is used by the crooks as a meeting place. It is decided to have Doris act as a decoy and to get Lake to visit a flat which has been prepared beforehand. She is therefore told that Lake has defrauded her lover Leland of a considerable sum of money and that if he could be seen, things might be arranged satisfactorily. She is told to speak to Lake, who will be pointed out to her in the hotel, and tell him that her mother who has friends in Goldfield wishes to ask his advice about mining stock. The plan succeeds and Lake unsuspectingly goes to the flat and while alone with Doris, Leland with two other crooks rush in and accuse him of being in a compromising position with Doris whom he calls his wife, much to her amazement, and says that Lake must pay in money to avoid scandal. Lake intuitively feels that Doris is innocent and refuses. A furious fight ensues in which Lake is knocked unconscious, robbed of all his money and locked in the room, the crooks making good their escape with Doris, whom they take to their hiding place. Their plans are defeated, however, by one of their own band, Laylock and 'Frisco Kate, who, hardened crooks though they have been, refused to be parties to the dragging down of an innocent girl. They release Lake and go along with him to the police and lead a raid on the crooks' hiding place who are all captured and receive their just deserts. Doris meets her father at the police station, he having come to New York to trace her. Lake, who is much interested in them, invites them to his hotel to meet his mother and sister.

The marriage of Marguerite Lenox to a wealthy Russian, and her subsequent widowhood, occasions a trip to Russia by her father, Arthur Bainbridge Lenox. He is a handsome man in the early forties. The noble Weletsky family, into whom his daughter has married, have never seen either Lenox or his wife, but desire Lenox's co-operation in the settlement of his daughter's estates. The summons comes while they are in Paris. A passport for two, man and wife, is secured, But Mrs. Lenox is of delicate health and decides to let her husband take the journey alone. The Nihilist, "Helen Marie," is also preparing a trip to Russia. Of unknown identity, her activities are yet notorious, and the police of Russia are warned. Knowledge of the passport is brought to her by a young Nihilist girl employed in Mrs. Lenox's services. Helene Marie has a just cause against the Russian aristocracy. When hardly more than a child, she saw her family butchered in cold blood. She carries through a ruse whereby Lenox permits her to cross the Russian frontier as his wife. Her charm begins to work upon his susceptible nature. The pair are continually brought into contact with personages and officials dangerous to Helene Marie. Finally, at the hotel in St. Petersburg she reveals her identity to Lenox and dares him to betray her secret. She charms the rich aristocratic Weletskys and Sacha Weletsky falls in love with her. The strain on Lenox induces him to resort to a drug for sleep. He forestalls his daughter's contemplated journey to Petersburg (from the Russian provinces) and attempts to take "his official wife" back to western Europe. Her work in Russia has been completed. She would gladly go, but the Weletskys beg her to remain and attend a ball. She learns the Czar is to be in attendance. It is her one chance to become the Joan of Arc of the Nihilists. She refuses to go back with Lenox. Lenox therefore purposely misses the train. He returns to the hotel, finds his "official wife" being wooed by Sacha. But he accompanies her to the ball. During the evening his hand touches the pistol in the folds of her gown. He realizes her object is the Czar's assassination. He averts this tragedy by a sleeping potion which he gives to Helen Marie in a glass of punch. She collapses and he carries her home. Meanwhile the secret service has sent a telegram to the real Mrs. Lenox in Paris which brings her to Russia. Lenox's secret is, however, protected by the police, because of his saving the life of the Czar, Helene Marie induces Sacha to elope with her in his yacht, which is fired upon from the forts and Helene reveals her identity. The young man renounces rank for love of her, but his yacht is sunk by the Imperial guns.

Advised by his friends to seek a second wife so that his children, Helen and Dolores, may know a mother's care, Sir Edward Tilbury marries Phyllis, the daughter of Lady Olivia Gower, a leading social light in Calcutta. One day, after they are married, Nattoo, an Indian fakir and "devil priest," enters the compound of Sir Edward's house and greatly frightens Phyllis and her mother with the snakes that he carries. Phyllis beats him and thrusts him off the grounds, warning him never to return again. Nattoo swears to be revenged and watches for the first opportunity to do her harm. Phyllis, who is not very fond of children, does not take much notice of Helen and Dolores, who are greatly disappointed in their new mother, of whom they had hoped so much. One day, hurt because Phyllis has ordered them to run off and play by themselves, they go out of the compound and wander about the streets of the city, where they meet Nattoo. The fakir, who sees that something is the matter, hears that the reason for their crying is that their new mother does not love them. He gives Helen a poisonous charm, telling her to put it in her mother's tea when she is not looking, and saying that it will make her love them. Helen rushes home as fast as she can and finds Phyllis taking afternoon tea in the garden. While she is reading the paper, Helen drops the charm in her tea and sits down to await results. Dolores, who suspects that something is wrong, meets her father on the street in his automobile. She tells him of the fakir and they at once rush home, arriving just in time to save Phyllis from taking the poison. The "charm" proves to be an effectual instrument in bringing the family together, for Phyllis realizes how much the children wish to love her and gives them her own love in return.

The White Slave; or, The Octoroon

Part One: The estate of …
Part One: The estate of Terrebonne, in Louisiana, had been heavily mortgaged by the owner, Judge Payton, who, when he died, left the estate to his brother's widow and her son George, making Mrs. Peyton the guardian of Zoe, his natural daughter by a quadroon. Zoe is a very attractive girl and wins the heart of George Peyton, who has been pledged to marry his cousin, Dora Sunnyside. Zoe captures other hearts as well. Scudder, a Terrebonne overseer, and McClosky, a slave trader, both fall victims to her charms and rivalry between them becomes intense. The mortgage on Terrebonne is suddenly foreclosed. McClosky discovers that the Free Papers on Zoe were taken out by Judge Peyton after the date of the mortgage, an illegal proceeding. Zoe is therefore an octoroon and still a slave of the estate. McClosky determines to obtain Zoe for himself. Mrs. Peyton is expecting a check that will redeem the mortgage. If McClosky can delay the check, the estate will be sold and he will then be able to buy Zoe. Mrs. Peyton sends Paul, a little slave boy, to fetch the mail, expecting the check with it. On his way back Paul notices the tin-type camera of Scudder, the overseer. He tells Wah-No-Tee, an Indian and his protector, to remove the cap from the camera. McClosky approaches the boy from behind and strikes him with a heavy club. McClosky opens the mail bag and extracts the letter and check, which he places in his bosom. The Indian thinking that the camera is a sort of gun that has killed Paul, smashes it with his club. Then he buries Paul in a nearby cane-brake. Part Two: Zoe is put up for sale. McClosky bids highest. Paul is called and found missing. A search is made and the rifled mail bag found and close to it the club with which the boy had been killed. McClosky points out that the club is the property of the Indian Wah-No-Tee and accuses him of the murder. When the Indian is brought he describes with gestures how he had found the body, of the burial, and of smashing the camera. Scudder picks up his camera and finds that in its fall the dark slide had automatically closed. He takes the plate and develops it. The photograph shows McClosky kneeling by the body and opening the mail bag. The sheriff takes the murderer, and the check is found on him. George Peyton confesses to his mother that he still loves Zoe. She overhears his declaration and knows that as a slave, George cannot marry her. She goes to the slave quarters and gets some toothache cure, which is poisonous. Meanwhile. Wah-No-Tee is on the trail of McClosky, who has escaped. Scudder and the others allow the Indian to wreak his vengeance, return to the house, bearing the check that will redeem the estate and free Zoe. Zoe comes into the house and seeks out Dora Sunnyside whose forgiveness she asks, having won the love of George Peyton, placing Dora's hand in his. Zoe swoons and is brought back to consciousness by Dora and George. She tells George to fill a glass with water and empty the headache medicine into it. Thus, she dies by the hand of the man she loves, just as Scudder enters with the check that would have obtained her freedom.

The Mystery of the Stolen Jewels

Lambert Chase, the detective, is on his way to Europe: he is surprised to see a box lowered from a ventilator, leading out to the upper deck. He takes the box, and discovers it contains a set of jewels. He puts them in his pocket, says nothing about them. Later, reports are circulated about the steamer that many articles of value are missing from the staterooms of the passengers. Chase goes to the Captain, confides his suspicions and tells him the incident of the box. They investigate, and locate the ventilator. They set a guard there, who watches for the reappearance of the thief. Among the passengers are Mr. and Mrs. Carrell, wealthy people, who have with them, their maid, Jane. Chase suspects her of being an accomplice of the thief, whom circumstances point out as Linten, a very suave, refined and cultured rascal; who makes himself very popular among his fellow-travelers. The maid is quietly arrested and locked in one of the cabins. When the rumor about the thefts being committed, is circulated, he is sympathetic with those who have been robbed, and shows great interest. In his arrangements for capturing the thief, Lambert Chase ties one end of the string, which was lowered from the ventilator, to a small bell, safely hidden on the lower deck, where he and the Captain await developments. This is done on the last day out, when Chase is certain the thief will get in his best work. His plans are rewarded by hearing the bell ring, then, after a pause, ring again. This convinces them that the thief thinks the string has caught. The Captain and the detective hasten to the upper deck, and there they find Linton striving to pull up the cord. They grab him, and after a search, find his pockets filled with many stolen articles. He is handcuffed.
