Editorial Reviews

Hopalong Cassidy was heard on radio and seen on TV, but the legend was born on the silver screen. Here is a deluxe 2-disc set of frontier fun filled with 7 complete Hopalong Cassidy feature films – for the first time on DVD - starring the great William Boyd (and his trusty horse, Topper), with George "Gabby" Hayes as Hoppy’s sidekick, Windy Halliday.

Robert Mitchum, George (Superman) Reeves, Duncan (The Cisco Kid) Renaldo and Lee J.(On the Waterfront) Cobb make early career appearances in these films.

Disc One

THE EAGLE’S BROOD (1935) – The second film of the classic series, with Hoppy saving the life of a notorious – but reformed - outlaw (silent star William Farnum) and helping him find his missing grandson.

IN OLD MEXICO (1938) – Hoppy is lured south of the border by a notorious outlaw (Paul Sutton of Jesse James) who is seeking revenge and will stop at nothing – including murder – to exact it.

SUNSET TRAIL (1939) – Hoppy poses as an Eastern city-slicker in order to uncover the truth behind a pair of murders. Glenn Strange (Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein) plays a bouncer.

LAW OF THE PAMPAS (1939) – En route to deliver cattle in Argentina, Hoppy gets mixed up with some killers. Popular Charlie Chan star Sidney Toler is the bad guy.

Disc Two

HIDDEN GOLD (1940) – A gang of outlaws has been robbing stagecoaches of their gold shipments, and it’s up to Hoppy to try and stop them. Minor Watson (Yankee Doodle Dandy) is the main henchman.

BORDER PATROL (1943) – Hoppy tries to stop a gang that’s smuggling Mexicans into the U.S. and turning them into slaves at a silver mine. The amazing supporting cast includes George (Superman) Reeves as one of the Mexican slaves, Duncan (The Cisco Kid) Renaldo as a border patrol officer, and young Robert Mitchum as a henchman!

TEXAS MASQUERADE (1944) – Hoppy goes undercover as a Boston lawyer (!) to save some naive ranchers from a group of unscrupulous businessmen who are after underground oil. Silent comic Snub Pollard plays a saloon waiter.

BONUS FEATURES:

Interview With Grace Boyd – A rare and revealing interview with William Boyd’s widow, former actress Grace Bradley.

Cowboy Commercials – A rare roundup of TV commercials starring some of the greatest Western stars ever, including John Wayne, Roy Rogers, and even Gary Cooper!

How can the listing say First Time On DVD ? All the Hopalong Cassidy movies and the Hoppy television shows are ALL available from another company. What is so RARE about this ?? Nothing on this set is new. I know for I own all of the movies and TV shows on DVD.

How can you even consider purchasing an item when you don't know it's content. This is typical of cheap dvds, no listing of titles. Get real.

Yes, the price is right for seven movies -- but it's also too good to be true. Each one of these seven films features a transfer from a washed-out, beat-to-crap print, and at least one (BORDER PATROL) is missing footage, approx. the first ten minutes of the movie! This is the first time in my life I'm tempted to return the DVD on the grounds that it features a lousy transfer. The great photography of Russell Harlan and the charm and power of William Boyd's acting both deserve better treatment.

Transfers from the original source are poor. The films in this collection are not in restored condition and are not rare.
