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."

The anonymous stunt boy
5 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

I was Timmy Hovey's stunt double in the movie. It was filmed at Universal International studios and I had the time of my life working on that picture. I was only 8 years old and I was chosen to do the riding for the child star of the movie. I did what was called a "Crouper" running up behind the horse and jumping on from the rear. They actually did a screen test with me, but I had no idea what was going on so I had a very short career in the movies. I never saw the movie when it came out, but about 15 years later I caught it on the late show on TV. If you sneeze you will miss me so watch closely for the kid jumping on the back of the horse, riding up a hill and then back down again. That's me, the anonymous stunt boy.
