Vintage Hoppy.

IN OLD Colorado has all the qualities and a few of the faults of this series, which brightened the lives of a generation of little boys (and a few girls). More than half a century later, nostalgia and recognition of the exactness of the approach both make this one rewarding.

To start with there's Boyd's painstakingly idealized lead, riding, shooting and attitudinizing. Some of Russel Harlan's most striking mountains photography backs the action, which includes a smallish herd of cattle getting pounds run off them in stampedes in swirling dust. Hayes proves one of the spunkiest of the heroines, actually filmed close to the action, as the herd sweeps by, and managing to take down the bad hat with a rifle shot. The best of the lead trios show up, with Clyde's California allowed to eliminate a look out with a comic routine, after being left holding the horses, and Heyden's Lucky backing off when one of those young women, who seem to prefer Hoppy, actually shows an interest in settling down with him. Bretherton, who did the first of the series, organises things efficiently. The balance between action and basic plot is just right and the comedy is even occasionally funny.

Against this is s certain simple mindedness. The cowboys sleep in full western gear. Hoppy manages to reconcile the Nesters and the Rancher and penetrate a dastardly plot with a couple of unconvincing lines of dialogue. Buck Jones and Tim Holt used to ride through something closer to the real world - but what the heck!
