Hopalong Cassidy with Topper 'Hopalong Cassidy'


Starred William Boyd as Hopalong

The character of Hopalong Cassidy was created by Clarence E. Mulford around the turn of the century. However, that was a very different Hopalong from the one we knew in the '50s. Actor William Boyd turned him into a faultless hero, an idol for the children, immaculately dressed in black to contrast dramatically with his silver hair, silver spurs and pearl handled revolvers, and his white steed, Topper. He lived at the Bar 20 ranch and was accompanied by his pal Red Connors (Edgar Buchanan)
