The Golden Age of Hollywood

The above captioned title was Clark Gable's first talkie. It also looked like a precursor to the Hopalong Cassidy series of which there were 66 films in all, but I can't find any reference that confirms this. Well the horse that Bill Boyd rode sure looks like Topper.

Not a bad western for 1931.

I kind of like this movie, though it isn't the best, and certainly doesn't compare to the cream of the Hopalongs. I checked my guide to the Cassidy films, and it doesn't mention it being a model for it. Although there seems to be confusion as to how Hoppy's look exactly came about.

When I first saw it early on in my collecting, I thought it was made as a related film to the Cassidys until I became familiar with the timeline.
