The Singing Cowgirl Gets Lucky

Mary Frances Gifford was a sixteen-year-old girl from Long Beach, California who had brains and was planning on attending Law School soon. Mary Frances had one little problem that kept her from becoming a woman in a field that was in the 1930’s dominated by men. Her problem? . . . .  Mary Frances was not only very intelligent, but very beautiful.

One sunny South California afternoon Mary Frances and her girlfriend were invited to a movie studio to watch a motion picture being made. When a studio executive saw Mary Frances he alerted his boss and Mary Frances was offered what she must have considered was a fortune to become an actress instead of going to law school.

Producer Harry Sherman and William Boyd enjoyed putting ‘left turns’ in their Hopalong Cassidy stories, and Frances Gifford, the young damsel in distress in this story provides that unexpected moment. It was customary in most cowboy western adventures for the cowboy hero to serenade the lady in distress with a song or two while he strummed his guitar.

William Boyd was NOT a singing cowboy, just a smiling, laughing, yet tough and fast shooting hombre, and in the few Hopalong Cassidy stories that feature singing, it was usually done by singing cowhands sitting around the ranch.

In this adventure Mary Frances Gifford, as the silver mine owner’s daughter Helen Forbes, grabs a guitar from a clumsy Lucky Jenkins and proceeds to play the guitar and sing a song that demonstrates that she not only had an intelligent mind and a beautiful body, but also a darn good singing voice.

The silver is being stolen from her father’s mine, and the little town has organized a vigilante group of townsmen who chase after the bad guys . . . . . But the leader of the bad guys is also the leader of the vigilante committee that is chasing the bad guys. Only Hoppy and his side-kicks will be able to untangle this fine mess. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
