Above, Boyd in a 1935-36 publicity still.  Note the holster drops which allowed Hoppy's striped pants to show through for a nice effect.

The drops were weak and got distorted and floppy.  Boyd had carved leather patches sewed behind the drops as shown above.

Want more nitty-gritty details on the gunbelt variations that William Boyd wore in the Hopalong Cassidy adventures?

In the photo left are Joe Sullivan and A. J. Siarkowski in their Hoppy outfits at the Cambridge, Ohio Hoppy Festival. Joe's wearing the black 1939 style outfit, and A. J. is in the 1937 type with dark blue shirt and smaller hat.

Go to the William Boyd/Hopalong Cassidy section on the Old Corral and read A. J.'s detailed report on Hoppy's gunbelt.
