Ginger and Hopalong
18 April 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

An old logger expects his son (William Boyd) to follow in his footsteps but the son is more interested in pretty showgirl Honey (Ginger Rogers) than in taking his job seriously. William Boyd is a poor lead but he would go on to big success as Hopalong Cassidy, who was very popular with kids. There's a couple of annoying comic relief characters among the lumberjacks. They're played by Edgar Kennedy and Harry Sweet. This one's a creaker with some nice location shooting, logging footage, and a couple of nice action sequences but that's about it. Besides Ginger, of course. Pretty much any Ginger Rogers movie is worth a look for her alone.
