Very well done documentary. With Dennis Weaver narrating and Hoppy's wife adding insider information I found this man was very dedicated to image for the good of children who followed him. I will never forget those days at the Strand Theater in Redondo Beach when a quarter gave me a whole days entertainment and many times Hoppy was on the bill. When the lights went down I was wisked to a magic world of cowboys where good guys wore white and the bad guys wore black. You knew the good guys would win and Hoppy would always close with a smile. After fifty years those days are still as clear as ever. The strand is gone now as is the fable of black and white but thank goodness that one time in america there was a Hop-Along Cassidy!
I miss Mr. Boyd, the Strand and innocense.
