Trivia

This is one of 54 Hopalong Cassidy features produced by Harry Sherman, initially distributed by Paramount Pictures from 1935-41 and then by United Artists 1942-44, which were purchased by their star William Boyd for nationally syndicated television presentation beginning in 1948 and continuing thereafter for many years, as a result of their phenomenal success. Each feature was re-edited to 54 minutes so as to comfortably fit into a 60-minute time slot, with six minutes for commercials. It was not until 50 years later that, with the cooperation of Boyd's wife Grace Bradley that they were finally restored to their original length with their original opening and closing credits intact.

Diplomacy as well as guns

In Old Colorado finds Hopalong Cassidy along with Russell Hayden and Andy Clyde come up from Arizona on a cattle buying deal from the Bar 20. An old friend of Bar 20 foreman Buck Peters needs to sell her cattle because Sarah Padden and her granddaughter Margaret Hayes can't get them to water. They're locked in a bitter dispute with Stanley Andrews who owns the local Ponderosa and controls the water rights. And he ain't about to let no homesteaders have any. Homesteaders by his definition is late arrivals to the territory be they cattlemen or farmers.

Padden leads the homesteaders and she's in a bitter dispute with Andrews. But Morris Ankrum of her crowd is looking to get everyone killed and take over. It takes diplomacy to settle this one and Bill Boyd has plenty of both.

The romance department in the Hopalong Cassidy series was always left to the young sidekick. Russell Hayden gets a bit serious with Margaret Hayes who would go on to have a good career as usually a second string leading lady.

Hoppy fans will go for this one.
