Hopalong Cassidy meets Jan Labij

Am I Crazy? . . . . Hey . . . . That was just rhetorical . . . . Stop nodding your heads! . . . . William Boyd died in 1972, and I never had the pleasure of meeting him, But as I watch him on film preserved from long ago . . . . Call me crazy, but I believe that I can 'feel' his spirit as he acts the part of Hopalong Cassidy, Texas Ranger. Bill Boyd had a horrendous childhood that none of us can probably relate to. When he made it to California as a teenager his hair was already snow white as any grandpa's hair, and he was struggling to earn enough money for his next meal. But as I watch him play the part of Hopalong Cassidy in Hollywood cowboy adventures I swear that I can 'feel' his happy, good-hearted spirit all these years later . . . and now I have a confirmation from an old fan who sent me an e-mail after my last comments about the cowboy star . . . . Jan Labij grew up in North Hollywood about a block from Bing Crosby's home. Jan tells me that W.C. Fields lived about 10 blocks away on the shores of Toluca Lake. Jan's father was famous as part of the "Radio Rubes" Vaudeville and radio act and his mother was a wanna-be Broadway actress that gave up her Broadway dreams when she fell in love with the Radio Rube and brought little Jan up in North Hollywood, acting occasionally in some "Our Gang" comedy shorts. Jan tells me that as a youngster who enjoyed Saturday afternoons watching the cowboy movies, he one day met Bill Boyd in person, and had a conversation that was unforgettable. One day Cowboy Star Bill Boyd was appearing at a studio 'Meet and Greet' event in the West San Fernando Valley, and young Jan met him and had a short conversation with him. Jan says that he was incredibly warm in person, greeting his fans with a 'Hey Pardner' and a warm, wide smile. On this day Bill Boyd drove up to the event in a big black Cadillac convertible with huge longhorns mounted on the hood. When it was Jan's turn to meet the great cowboy star, Jan figured he would kid the cowboy movie star about his Cadillac with the big longhorns on the hood. Jan commented that times must be tough in Hollywood if a cowboy star like him couldn't afford a Packard. Bill Boyd broke into a big warm laugh and replied, "Son, it would take a real jerk to deface a Packard Victoria with a set of horns." Obviously, William Boyd was no jerk, and the warmth and joy that I can see in his movie roles was just as real when he was not in front of a camera . . . . just a part of who he was. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy one of the warmest, fun-loving cowboy stars of the Hollywood big screen.
