Dynamite on the Hoof

Actor Sidney Blackmer caught the acting bug when he was a laborer helping to construct a building near a movie set for a silent serial. A career of selling insurance was soon forgotten and the North Carolina boy went to New York and became a successful Broadway actor.

When movies began adding sound, Hollywood motion picture studios searched Broadway for talented actors with good voices. Sidney Blackmer was often the smooth-talking well-bred bad guy in movies, but is also remembered as playing the part of Teddy Roosevelt in a dozen different movies.

In 1948 Sidney and his actress wife Suzanne Kaaren purchased an apartment at 100 Central Park West in New York City, and after Sidney’s death in 1973, Suzanne Kaaren stayed in that apartment until the building was torn down in the 1980’s and a condominium tower was constructed. The condo builder tried everything he could to evict Suzanne when she refused to sell her apartment, but the courts demanded that she be given a free condo in the new building in exchange for her apartment, and she remained in that condo until her death in 2004.

In this adventure Sidney Blackmer is a rancher who rustles cattle and is trying to marry the sister of the neighboring ranch so that he can control the entire valley and move his rustled cattle without being noticed. Unfortunately for him, he tries to hire Hopalong Cassidy and his side-kick Johnny to become henchmen and hired guns in his rustling venture. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
