There are two supporting actors in this cowboy adventure that later became famous stars, and one who appeared in this movie and never appeared on film again.
Hopalong Cassidy’s side-kick in this adventure is actor George Reeves. In 1951 Reeves would star in the very first Superman film, and a year later The Adventures of Superman would become a television series, also starring George Reeves as the Man of Steel.
The Bride Groom in this story is Robert Mitchum, who would later become a legendary film star. But I want to tell you about the young lady that both of these men were sweet on.
Legendary actors Dustin and William Farnum were famous Broadway actors who became even more famous as motion picture stars in the first days of silent movies. On the 29th of May in 1925 Dustin Farnum and his actress wife Winifred had a baby girl, who they named Dustine Farnum.
Dustine’s father would die when she was four years old, but Dustine and her mother would remain in Hollywood among their actor friends, and Dustine mentioned that she was often bounced on the lap of frequent visitor Cecil B. DeMille.
When Dustine was eighteen years old she wanted to follow in the footsteps of her famous actor parents and she got the part of the young lady in this adventure who is about to marry the character played by Robert Mitchum.
Her mother in this story is Betty Blythe, who was famous silent screen beauty who was never shy about showing off her buxom hourglass body in scanty clothing. This story is full of actors of note, but young Dustine, in her first screen appearance captures my attention. This would be her one and only screen appearance. For some reason she was never hired again for any motion picture or television role. Dustine Farnum died in 1983, and this movie appearance is the only lasting legacy of her personality, voice and character. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
