This really is the first time that all 66 Hopalong Cassidy movies have been assembled into one DVD collection. I have been trying to collect them all on DVD for a long time. 16 of the early movies were released as double features on DVD. Those are out of print and are very hard to find. The re-mastering of the movies is great. They are a huge improvement over the VCR tapes. The sound is surprisingly good.

Please note that this collection does not include any of the 52 TV programs. You can get them at Amazon.com under "Hopalong Cassidy: Complete Collection". That set has all 52 programs and 10 movies. Amazon.com also has the 52 TV programs on two separate sets of 26 TV episodes." Hopalong Cassidy TV Collection #1" and "Collection 2".

I highly recommend this item to all fans of Hopalong Cassidy, westerns and classic film and television.

Yes, all 66 Hoppy features are collected together for the first time. Why the whacky title order on the discs? Sadly, because the first 8 discs are identical to the previous Platinum releases. In fact, they ARE the old Platinum discs, right down to the disc labelling (Platinum became Echo Bridge Entertainment). As such, they suffer from the same over-compression, cramming 5 titles per single sided/single-layered disc. Wish I could say that the "new" discs were any different, as they are not. If you watch these on a standard-def TV and the screen is not too large, then they might look OK. Otherwise, look forward to blurring and other motion artifacts. They are quite watchable, but certainly not up to the standards seen on the Image DVD transfers.

Sadly, this will probably be the only "complete collection" available of the feature films. Recommended only for big-time Hoppy fans.

As an interesting footnote....these same guys at Echo Bridge DID try to do right by some of these films by releasing a 4-disc set with only 3 films per disc about a year ago. They looked great...no compression artifacts! Why this step back???

Great idea packaging all 66 feature films of William Boyd as Hopalong Cassidy together in one set! Nice extra of housing them in a small reprduction metal lunchbox for that 1950's feel.
As for the films themselves, DVD reproduction is excellent as they are the same masters the Platinum Disc label (now owned by Echo Bridge Entertainment) released over a period of years in separate packages consisting of one disc containing 5 features in each, randomly chosen from the Cassidy catalog. And there's the rub!
If this set were a budget priced DVD package, I could understand, but it's not at an $80.00 list price, so why has Echo Bridge merely reproduced the Platinum Disc releases with new labels but the same format. Randomly picked films in no particular original release order?
This in my opinion would be a 5 star review if only Echo Bridge had taken the time to organize the films in their original order of theatrical release, starting from the earliest to the last productions. As it is, one has to jump around to different discs to view them that way. And I wish to! This was a big letdown for me when I received the package. So the 3 stars is strictly for the quality of the masters used on the DVD's, but it should and could have been a 5
star set!

From Paramount's original idea of a one shot feature version of Hopalong Cassidy back in the mid-1930's to have starred James Gleason, Clarence E. Mulford's two-gun hero dressed in black was saved from a quick death when Silent and early sound movie star William Boyd won the role. From 1935 until 1948, Boyd starred in a series of 66 theatrical features, bought rights to the films to market to TV, produced half hour Hoppy adventures for radio and TV, and solidified his image as the character by marketing Hoppy products. The Cassidy films were always a notch or two above all the series westerns mass produced by Republic, Columbia, Universal and Monogram, both story and acting wise - and the series co-starring George "Gabby" Hayes and Andy Clyde as comic relief were some of the best. I had searched for years trying to find DVD copies of all the features and finally found the entire collection at Amazon. Although the collection was not pressed in order the films were produced and released, I went to the Internet Movie Data Base, punched in William Boyd and got the titles of all in ascending order, printed them on five pages and then added the proper discs and volume numbers - and that is the way I have been watching them. Although Hoppy hit the silver screen two years before I made my debut, I did catch the last releases from 1944 on in my local theater, and then caught the first releases when they played in our foot-square TV late Saturday afternoons. Now, over 60 years later, I again enjoy Hopalong's adventures - and they are still a notch or two above the other surviving western series. Oh yes, I watch them Saturday afternoons. All of the films have been digitally restored with audio-visual enhancement making the daylight scenes bright and shiny and the night scenes rich black and white. I recommend the collection for all my contemporaries and youngsters who just love good western movies.
