Armadillo

Серия: "-"

Lorimer Black - young, good-looking, but with a somewhat troubled expression - does not understand why his world is being torn apart, though he does know that for the most part it is made up of bluster and hypocrisy. His business, trying to keep insurance companies from paying out the money they've promised, is a con game run with the protection of the law. One winter's morning, Lorimer goes to keep a perfectly routine business appointment and finds a hanged man. A bad start to the day, by any standards, and an ominous portent of things to come.

Boyd, William

▪ American actor
born June 5, 1898, Hendrysburg, Ohio, U.S.
died Sept. 12, 1972, Hollywood
 American motion-picture and television actor who was best known for his portrayal of Hopalong Cassidy in a series of western films.

      Although born in Ohio, he grew up (from the age of 7) in Oklahoma and attended school only until he was 13. Thereafter, he held many odd jobs until, at the age of 20, he set out for California. Boyd began his film career in 1918 with a role in Cecil B. deMille's Old Wives for New, and he appeared throughout the 1920s in films made by deMille. He first played the role of the cowboy hero in 1935 in the film Hopalong Cassidy. With his tall stature and white hair, Boyd was a distinctive figure; wearing a black hat and costume and riding a white horse, he quickly became identified by the public with the screen hero. He played the role in subsequent films until the late 1940s and then reenacted it for a television series, also called Hopalong Cassidy (1952–54).
