Stars of Skipalong Rosenbloom, Slapsie Maxie Rosenbloom and Max Baer were a pair of former boxing champions who around this time had a nightclub act together. Rosenbloom who talked with that punch drunk New York accent and Baer who was always known as a man who liked to have a good time more than anything else. They did well on the nightclub circuit and made this western spoof on Hopalong Cassidy currently enjoying a revival on the small screen.

Rosenbloom of course is in the title role. He's the sheriff, not the brightest law enforcement official going, but earnest enough is after the Butcher Baer gang. Baer is the most notorious outlaw in the west, but he's only the front. Behind every man there's a smart woman and in this case smart and beautiful Hillary Brooke.

Both Rosenbloom and Baer also did screen roles after their boxing careers were over. Both separately were known to the movie-going public. This is the only time both were together in the same film.

Skipalong Rosenbloom relies a lot on the images of these two fighters. I do hope someone brings this interesting film out on DVD.
