The definitive biography Hopalong Cassidy, "An American Legend", was co-authored by Bradley and Michael Cochran in 2008.
A petite and extremely lovely blonde "B" film actress who eventually deserted her career in favor of standing by her man (cowboy icon William Boyd, aka, "Hopalong Cassidy"), Grace Bradley spent the rest of her life in his shadow and devoting herself to her husband's career. Bill's Hoppy was the longest span of any fictional character played by the same actor. Following his death in 1972, she spent a good deal of her time keeping his good name and image in tact.
Suffering from Parkinson's disease, he died of heart failure in Laguna Beach in 1972 at age 77. Bradley went on to spend the last decades of her life devoting herself to volunteer work at the same hospital where her husband had died. She later withstood legal battles that stemmed from copyright infringements, but enjoyed appearing occasionally at Hopalong Cassidy tributes.
In 1968, Boyd had surgery to remove a tumor from a lymph gland. From that point on, he refused all requests for interviews and photographs.
Boyd retired from show business in 1953 quite wealthy. He and his wife then moved to Palm Desert, California.
They took the character to episodic television in 1948 and he became a hit all over again. "Hoppymania" burst onto the American scene with hundreds of products bearing his name and likeness becoming instant collectible items (lunch boxes, tee shirts, toy guns, etc).
By 1946 he had formed his own production company and began churning out new Hopalong Cassidy films and serials.
By 1944, Boyd's movie career had faltered and the couple sought the purchasing rights to his old movies and the identifiable Hoppy character. Selling their Malibu ranch home and moving to a Hollywood apartment, the risk paid off.
She appeared in the mystery Romance on the Run (1938) with Donald Woods; enjoyed top billing in the "B" crime drama The Invisible Killer (1939); supported heavy-duty singers Allan Jones and Susanna Foster in the musical romance The Hard-Boiled Canary (1941); and provided decorative diversion in the Jack London adventure Sign of the Wolf (1941) opposite Michael Whalen.
In 1937, she happened to cross paths with William Lawrence Boyd, who became her literal "Prince Charming on a big white horse". She had harbored a long-time school-girl crush on the man and she was instantly smitten upon their first meeting. He was 42 and she 23. Their courtship was fast and furious. He asked her to marry him within a few days and they were married three weeks later on June 5th. Boyd had already been married four times, none lasting any longer than six years. She would become the fifth (and last) Mrs. William Boyd in a marriage that would last 35 years. The couple had no children together; Bill had one child from his third marriage. Grace continued on with her cinematic career for a time.
Appearing secondary in the Bing Crosby/Ethel Merman version of Anything Goes (1936), her musical talents were tapped into with the films The Cat's-Paw (1934), Stolen Harmony (1935), Old Man Rhythm (1935), Sitting on the Moon (1936), and Wake Up and Live (1937). Elsewhere, various "B" male co-stars would include Wallace Ford, Lee Tracy, Jack Haley, John Boles, Robert Livingston, Jack Holt and Robert Armstrong.
While performing at the Paradise nightclub in Manhattan in 1933, she was "discovered" by a Paramount Pictures director and signed for films. Out west, Bradley often was cast as an assertive "bad girl" or femme-fatale at Paramount with names like Goldie, Trixie, Flossie, Lily and Sadie.
Her first full-length movie was as a second lead in the Bing Crosby/Jack Oakie musical comedy Too Much Harmony (1933), in which she sang and danced to the feisty tune "Cradle Me With a Hotcha Lullaby". She subsequently appeared in the W. C.
The former film lead and second lead was born in Brooklyn, New York on September 21, 1913, and initially studied to be a concert pianist. At age 15 she played Carnegie Hall, representing the state of New York in one of its annual competitions for up-and-coming pianists. She took advantage of all her assets by modeling full time and taking singing/dancing lessons on the sly. She went on to act, sing, and dance on the Broadway stage in the musicals "Strike Me Pink" and "The Little Show".
