The Eagle's Brood (1935)

Paramount Pictures
Directed by Howard Bretherton
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

A Mexican outlaw saves sheriff Hoppy from quicksand, who agrees to help find his grandson in exchange for not arresting him. The boy's parents were killed in a stage robbery by bandits who run the "El Infierno" saloon near a place called "Hell's Center".  He is taken in by the friendly dance hall girl who hides him in her room, but she is murdered when the bandits find out. He hides out in the canyon until Hoppy finds him. Unusually downbeat, and violent, second entry in the long running Hopalong Cassidy series, with the characters not yet full developed. Even Gabby Hayes has yet to grow out his beard.
