NORTHWEST TRAIL (1945) w/ Bob Steele and Poodles Hanneford

Postby Richard M Roberts » Fri Aug 09, 2013 7:02 am

Here's an amazing little 1945 Robert Lippert release with an incredible cast: Bob Steele, Joan Woodbury, John Litel, Raymond Hatton, Charles Middleton, Madge Bellamy in her only 1940's and final film role, and basically playing comedy-relief side-kick is Poodles Hanneford with his Daughter Grace Hanneford also making an appearance.

Shot in Idyllwild, Ca standing in for the Canadian Northwoods and in Cinecolor as well, definitely worth a look:

Is Poodles given the opportunity to ride the rear end of a horse?
Better yet, does his daughter Grace?

I believe it was on your Weiss-O-Roni commentaries where you mention that the Hanneford name continued on in the circus trade with succeeding family members long after Poodles retired.
