Hopalong Cassidy Meets Spiderman

He was born in Blairgowrie, Perthshire, Scotland. His father was an accomplished actor and producer in Scotland, so it was natural that Andrew and his brother David and sister Jean would also get the acting bug. Andrew toured the U.S. with a play called ‘The Concealed Bed’ and must have liked what he saw here, because several years later he returned to act in Mack Sennet’s silent motion picture comedy stories. The handsome Scotsman married a Sennett bathing beauty actress and their marriage lasted until Andrew’s death in 1967.

The clean-shaven, well-dress actor not only learned to speak fluent American English, but with his mastery of makeup and disguise, he was able to portray ragged, slightly addled but good-natured characters in motion pictures and on television for more than forty-five years. Perhaps his most memorable character was California Carlson, the good-natured side-kick comedy character in Hopalong Cassidy adventures.

In this adventure Hopalong Cassidy and California Carlson, along with Lucky Jenkins, are embroiled in a scheme by a mad professor to switch a gold shipment with gold plated copper bars. The professor will capture and tie-up our good guys and set a killer spider loose that will silently murder our heroes . . . . Or maybe not. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
