The Gangster, The Sister, & the Mountain Cattle Cow-Puncher

Edmund Richard ‘Hoot’ Gibson was a pioneering star of the big screen, appearing in his first movie in 1910, during the very first days of motion pictures. After running away from home at the age of 13 to join a circus, he became a cow-puncher in the Wyoming and Colorado territories before wandering down to Hollywood. He was paid $2.50 for his first movie appearance in 1910, at the age of 18, as a cowboy stunt man. By 1920 he was one of Hollywood’s most popular actors, but by 1930 he started a downhill slide.

When sound was added to motion pictures, the popular cowboys would sing a song or two, and Hoot Gibson wasn’t a singer, so he wound up in the ‘B’ cowboy movies like this one. He continued to appear in movies and on tv over the years, and the final time he was seen in a motion picture was a cameo appearance in the huge 1960 hit “Ocean’s Eleven.” By this time he was earning a living as a casino greeter in Las Vegas. Hoot Gibson passed two years after his last screen appearance, at the age of seventy.

I wasn’t alive during the golden age of cowboy movies, but I’ve enjoyed re-living those days while watching the movies made about the western pioneers from the 1930’s and 1940’s. The mix of cowboy life, with the humor, danger, good-guys and bad-guys is always exciting to see. As I sit here, watching this movie, I must tell you that I have never, ever, ever seen such a horrifying scene as the first scene of this adventure.

One cowboy is riding as fast as he can from a posse of men who are determined to capture him. Sure enough, a cowboy in the posse swings his rope and soon the fleeing cowboy is lassoed and pulled off of his speedy horse, tumbling to the hard dirt. What happened next sent spasms of fear through me, and I could almost feel the pain that the captured cowboy was feeling, and I could see the palpable fear on his face as he met his fate. And that was just the first scene! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
