Another likeable Hopalong film
11 December 2000 | by (Greenville, Ohio) – See all my reviews

William Boyd's Hopalong Cassidy embodied simple American righteousness, despite his black attire. With Lucky, Windy (Gabby Hayes), or later California, he defended frontier justice. However, I'm not sure of the time period ; sometimes the setting seemed modern, others are more traditionally old western. In "Santa Fe Marshal", Hopy goes undercover as he once did in "Borderland". He must discover who is behind a series of robberies. Ingratiating himself to a traveling medicine show, Cassidy becomes the band's mysterious mindreader. One doesn't need to be psychic to know the outcome of this formalistic sagebrush saga. Nevertheless, it is Boyd's screen charisma that makes this film, as well as others in the series, enjoyable. I recommend the first film "Hopalong Cassidy Enters" and "Wide Open Town". Also, the early John Wayne ( who displays comparable mannerisms to Boyd or vice versa depending on your opinion) vehicle "Dawn Riders" is a modest western. 2 out of 4 stars.
