Before He Was Superman
Sure, William Boyd is Hopalong Cassidy and hero of this story, and future movie star Robert Mitchum is one of the henchmen, but my excitement grew as I realized that Superman was going to be in this cowboy adventure story . . . No, I don't mean Christopher Reeves or any of the later actors that played the caped crusader, I mean the first television Superman that kept me enthralled as a youngster . . . the one and only George Reeves! Look closely at the promo photo under the movie . . . the man between Claudia Drake and William Boyd is none other than Superman George Reeves. The tough part of watching this thrilling adventure is that he doesn't appear until the movie is well on towards the end . . . But the wait is well worth it because you will get to see George Reeves playing the part of a Mexican with a thick accent . . . what fun! Our adventure begins with Texas Ranger Hopalong Cassidy and two more rangers visiting a man and lady in Mexico who are complaining that Texans are luring Mexican men across the border in order to force them to work for nothing, and the men disappear without a trace. Hopalong and the other two rangers head for the Silver Bullet town and mine where they are immediately arrested by the Mayor, who is also the judge, and also the owner of the silver mine with the Mexican slave labor. Hopalong and the other two rangers are soon convicted in a kangaroo court and put in jail to await their hanging. Since the remote town is ruled by gangsters who make their own laws, it doesn't look good for Hopalong Cassidy and the other Texas Rangers . . . their hanging will be right after dinner, and it looks like three Texas Rangers are headed for the great beyond without a chance for escape. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the Super show.

Some of my Favorite Motion Pictures:
Probably my all time favorite movie, My Man Godfrey in 1936 not only gives us an comedic peek at the wealthiest and poorest during the Great Depression, but also was the vehicle for Carole Lombard to create the movie icon of the 'dumb blonde screwball comedy' that is a popular theme even today.
Meet John Doe - 1941: The Frank Capra classic set in the Great Depression era that pits the common man against the political masters. You can't be a fan of old movies until you watch Frank Capra's old movies. This one premiered seventy years ago, and it still stirs our emotions and thoughts now. It is as timely as if it were produced today.
The Time of Your Life - 1948: James Cagney financed this strangely different feel-good movie, and he plays the part of Joe, a barfly that tries to live his life by making everyone around him better. I watch this one often, and try to become more like Joe every day.
Painted Faces - 1929: Comedy legend Joe E. Brown is a circus clown in a surprisingly serious role as a juror in a Christmas week murder trial who tells the other jurors a story that will change their verdicts in a pre-code drama that could not have been made a few years later.
Charade - 1963: It doesn't get much better than Cary Grant and Audry Hepburn in a tale of death, deception, spies and lost wealth as a woman tries to sort out the good guys from the bad guys in this cold-war spy thriller love story.
