The Sheik and the Shysters
James Ellison, as Johnny Nelson, was Hoppy’s side-kick for the first seven Hopalong Cassidy adventures. Russell Hayden was sidekick Lucky Jenkins for the next twenty-nine adventures. In this adventure, singing cowboy Brad King is sidekick Johnny Nelson, in the fourth of five Hopalong Cassidy movies that he will be in.
Brad King acted in a total of seven movies, and no known television shows. After five Hopalong Cassidy movies he appeared in two more movies in bit parts and was never heard from again. If anyone can shed some light on Brad and his life away from movies, please let me know so that we can all learn more about this elusive fellow.
Update: One of our classic movie fans, Robert Callaghan, got more information about actor Brad King from movie expert Chuck Anderson, and we now know a lot more about Brad King. Brad died in Lodi, California in 1991, and a copy of his newspaper obituary was provided to us by Chuck Anderson. You can read about his amazing life courtesy of Robert Callaghan and Cuck Anderson:

Luli Deste, born in Vienna, Austria, is kidnapper Marie Karitza. Luli appeared in only eleven motion pictures and no know television shows, and this is her final screen appearance. If anyone can shed some light on the life and times of Ms. Deste, we would all be interested to learn more about her.
This Hopalong Cassidy adventure is number forty of the long-running series and all of the usual outlaws must be on vacation. Hopalong and his buddies are headed to Arabia to purchase some thoroughbred Arabian horses, along with a rancher, his wife and his young daughter. The rancher and his daughter will be kidnapped, and the rogue Arabian Sheik will wage war on Hoppy and the friendly Sheik providing Arabian horses for the rancher. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
