Trivia

Screenwriter Mary C. McCall Jr. said that the script was based mostly on the life of William Boyd, who had long played Hopalong Cassidy and for whom her husband (and co-writer) had worked in the 1930s: "It was a case of the man becoming the part - with the passage of time, Bill Boyd and Hopalong Cassidy were indistinguishable one from the other."

Fun to watch stuntman Jock Mahoney sing
15 August 1999 | by (Pine Bluff, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

While this film has a wonderful supporting cast of familiar Western and TV regulars (including Oscar-winning Ben Johnson and Paul Drake of the TV "Perry Mason", William Hopper), the most entertaining part of it is watching Jock Mahoney playing a singing cowboy and REALLY singing the songs. It goes without saying - although the credits do list it - that the master did his own stunts. Don't expect the next Citizen Kane or plan on hearing Jocko compete with Caruso, but get a kick out of the sappy plotline and watching the star display his varied abilities. You have to find it on TV, it's not on video to my knowledge.
