Boyd Gets to Do Some Acting in Another Good Hopalong Cassidy
14 October 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A gang of outlaws is burning out ranchers and then their front man is buying out the settlers at bargain prices. But when a pal of Hopalong's is killed, Cassidy goes to investigate, disguising himself as foppish, milk-drinking Bostonian to do so in an amusing comic turn.

Boyd, a capable but bland actor was made for this sort of western, and given the series' start at Paramount, it had a level of gloss, both in the writing and production that almost all B westerns lacked. Veteran George Archimbaud directs and the cast includes the always excellent Andy Clyde, Russel Simpson as the lead villain, the almost forgotten J. Farrel MacDonald, and Mady Correll as the female lead -- not the love interest, since Hopalong never smoked, drank or paid attention to women. A pleasant way to kill an hour.
