The Worst of all Hopalong Cassidy Movies
2 January 2004 | by (Long Island Motor Parkway) – See all my reviews

I'm a big Hoppy fan & like everything Hoppy's ever been in, except for this film. The previous reviewer (who stated that this is the worst of the Hoppy films) is correct. There's much more bad about it than what's good about it. I don't care for the "exotic" Arabian locales, I like my westerns to be set in the American west. Seeing William Boyd dressed in Arabic robes made him seem somewhat ridiculous! I prefer Hoppy in his all- black outfit (translation= "ready to take care of business"), but here he wore a gray shirt with black pants & hat, then got into the robes, & that just doesn't do it for me! Here are the positive points of this film: it starts out in Gila-Bend, which is nice; Hoppy identifies himself as a "county Deputy Sheriff"; California gets to ride Topper for a few minutes while Hoppy is breaking in a horse. That's it, even the comedy from California is weak. On the negative side, we have: the clothes issue (above), the absurdity of traveling to Arabia with Topper in tow (& I assume his side-kicks' horses as well), the very slow pace, the unexciting action sequences (3 gunfights, but apparently no one is even so much as wounded in any of them), the song by Brad King (although he's far from the worst of Hoppy's young sidekicks, see Jay Kirby & Jimmy Rogers for that "honor"), & the miscasting of Duncan Renaldo (TV's "Cisco Kid," who I like a lot) as an Arabic Sheik (whose Spanish accent creeps through at times, although he was "educated in

England"!). There's really not much to recommend here. As of this writing, imdb voters gave it a 7+ rating, which makes it one of the higher rated Hoppy movies. That's hard to believe, because there's 65 other Hoppy movies out there that are better than this one! This is the only film of Hoppy's that I'd rate below a 5/10, & I give it a 3/10.
