Cast (feature film)

Mr. Celebrity (1941) as Herself
The grandparents (James Halligan and Laura Treadwell) of Danny Mason (Buzzy Henry), an orphaned boy, are trying to have him put into their custody rather than that of his uncle, Jim King (James Seay), a racetrack veterinary, as they object to the track enviroment in which he is being raised. Their destinies become entwined with that of former silent-film stars Francis X. Bushman and Clara Kimball Young and ex-heavyweight champion James J."Jim" Jeffries, and that of a broken-down race horse named "Mr. Celebrity." The tagline tells it all.
The Round Up (1941) as Mrs. Wilson
The Wages of Sin (1938) as Fat Pearl
Frontiersman, The (1938)

The Frontiersmen (1938) as Mrs. [Amanda] Peters
Hills of Old Wyoming (1937) as Ma Hutchins
In the 10th film of the 66 Hopalong Cassidy movies, Russell Hayden makes his first (of 27 consecutive) appearances as Cassidy's sidekick/protege "Lucky" Jenkins. The character's actual name in the many Clarence E. Mulford books that featured him was "Mesquite" Jenkins, and Hayden's role was billed in this film as Mesquite "Lucky" Jenkins, and this film was the first and last mention of Mesquite Jenkins. This initial pairing of the trio of William Boyd,Russell Hayden and George Hayes(who only became known as "Gabby" when he wasn't allowed by Paramount to carry his "Windy" moniker to Republic when he departed the Cassidy series, which makes any pre-1939 cast listing showing a credit listing for a George "Gabby" Hayes a misnomer and in error for those who don't care for revisionist film history) is the one that many western-film and/or Cassidy devotees consider the best of all the trio pairings in the series. This one finds the ranchers near a Wyoming Indian reservation suffering heavy losses because of cattle rustlers that leave signs that the Indians are the culprits. Hopalong Cassidy (William Boyd) and his pals, Mesquite "Lucky" Jenkins (Russell Hayden) and "Windy" Halliday (George Hayes) buy the Bar Three ranch in the territory, and Cassidy suspects Andrews (Morris Ankrum as Stephen Morris), the deputy government agent in charge of the reservation, of being the head of the rustlers. When Lone Eagle (Steve Clemente), a half-breed secretly working with the gang, is found murdered, Andrews incites the Indians to make war on the white men. Cassidy, as the leader of the ranchers, gains the confidence of the Indian chief (Chief John Big Tree, in a role not unsimilar to his later one pow-wowing with John Wayne in "She Wore A Yellow Ribbon") by pointing out that Lone Eagle was "half-bad because he was half-white", and with the help of an Indian scout proves that Andrews killed Lone Eagle. The Indians then join forces with the ranchers in a Cassidy-led mounted charge against the rustler's stronghold, with the effective agitato score written by Lee Zahler for the earlier "Borderland" as the stirring background music.

Vindhyan, high priest of the cult's California base has learned of this, however, and works his Black Magic to gain control of Nadji.

When Chandu takes a voyage alone, however, the evil Voice of Ubasti is able to magically spirit her to Lemuria, where Black Magic reigns supreme.
