Storyline

Chad Pennington, a movie-cowboy from Hollywood, gets into trouble when he poses as a two-gun outlaw from Texas named Tommy Hawk. He gets himself involved in a dispute between a development company and the local ranchers who don't want their ranches 'developed.' He falls in love with Molly Hollis, a rancher's daughter, and sides with the good guys, although his swaggering about town in a pair of sheep-skin chaps does little to impress anybody. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A Cowboy Movie about Movie Cowboys
30 November 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Cowboy movie extras Hoot Gibson, Slim Summerville and Jack Curtis are stranded when location shooting closes. They promote Hoot as "the Texas Streak" for a job guarding a surveying team... and all he's got for a weapon is a gun with blanks.

Hoot was a star of comedy B westerns for Universal in the late silent era, and he had an easy-going charm to match his vehicles. When the coming of sound sent Carl Laemmle into a panic and he fired everyone on the lot who wasn't a relative, Hoot went to the independents and prospered for another fifteen years.

The copy from Grapevine Video that I looked at is cut down to 52 minutes from the 70 the IMDb lists, and it shows, both in continuity and little screen time for the always enjoyable Summerville, but Hoot is still a lot of fun in this effort. It is well directed by Lynn Reynolds, whose career would be cut short when he committed suicide the following year.
