"great for all ~ young and old ~ Hoppy you're our hero"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 11/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paramount Pictures came up with a fine screenplay from Norman Houston based on a novel by Clarence E. Mulford "Me An' Shorty", released with a new title "Cassidy of Bar 20". This 1938 film is just as fresh today with action, rustling and Texas gunmen. Only one man can tame this small army of gunmen ~ our man from the Bar 20...Cassidy. Director Lesley Selander takes full advantage with his cast of players William Boyd (Hopalong Cassidy), Russell Hayden (Lucky Jenkins), Frank Darien (Pappy), Nora Lane (Nora Blake), Robert Fiske (Clay Allison), Margaret Marquis (Mary Dillon), John Elliott (Tom Dillon) and Edward Cassidy (Sheriff Hawley). Hoppy stands up to Clay Allison putting an end to the marauders.With the "Partners of the Plains" another Paramount release in 1938, screenplay by Harrison Jacobs based on "The Man From Bar-20" (Clarence E. Mulford) with the guiding hand of director Lesley Selander and the watchful eyes of Harry Sherman give our fine cast of William Boyd (Hopalong Cassidy), Russell Hayden (Lucky Jenkins), Harvey Clark (Baldy Morton), Gwen Gaze (Lorna Drake), Hilda Plowright (Aunt Martha) and Al Hill (Doc Galer). Revenge is the main theme, mixed with get even with the man who sent him to the penitentiary ~ who happens to be our hero Hoppy. A familiar pattern of action and adventure takes the audience into raging fires, but Hoppy takes matters into his own hands ~ with the help of the wranglers from the Bar 20. William Boyd was my hero, this collection of two films are perfect, clear and give me hope for the future. Our youth should have such a hero to look up to today. Must mention the fact that I still miss one of my all-time-favorite sidekicks though, George "Gabby" Hayes, you're durn tootin'!"
