Happy Birthday Hopalong Cassidy!

By June 5, 2008

Follow me on:

Technically it's not Hopalong's birthday, June 5th (1895) is William Boyd's birthday. Although he was considered a movie idol in the silent movies, well before the days of Hopalong Cassidy, Hoppy is the only role we identify him with.

Hopalong Cassidy movies started in 1935 and he was one of the original good guys. He didn't smoke, drink, or swear and apparently rarely kissed a girl. No wonder the little boys loved Hopaong Cassidy so much!
