Hop-Along Cassidy Enters

In 1904 fiction author Clarence E. Mulford wrote a western adventure novel featuring a tough talking, shoot-first bully of a cowboy Hop-Along Cassidy. It was popular enough that Mulford wrote more adventures featuring the tough bad-guy cowboy. When Harry Sherman made this movie about the cowboy character he chose Bill Boyd to play the part of Cassidy. Boyd's personality was very different from the rude and crude cowboy of the books, and he brought the character to the big screen as a clean-cut, happy cowboy with a fast gun and a good sense of fair play. William Boyd as Hop-Along Cassidy became the embodiment of the character in the minds of the public to such a great extent that author Mulford began writing his books with his Hop-Along character patterned after William Boyd! In this first motion picture adventure for Boyd as Cassidy he gets shot in the leg while watching over a young cowhand at a birthday party, and for the rest of his life had a limp that caused him to 'hop along' as he walked. The Meeker ranch and the Bar 20 ranch shared the same water supply and a band of rustlers steals cattle from both of the ranches and makes each ranch think that the other ranch is the culprit. Pecos Jack is the head of the rustlers, and he is also the foreman of the Meeker ranch. He is very successful in getting the two ranches to feud, even shooting and killing cowhands from each ranch and making it appear that the other ranch is to blame. It will take Hop-Along Cassidy to figure out that both ranches are being rustled by a third party of rustlers and join forces with the Meeker ranch hands to have a shoot-out with the rustlers and string them up. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
