Today, Hoot has many fans who in 2006 enjoy his movies
11 February 2006 | by (adelaide) – See all my reviews

We appreciate that he was a "real Cowboy" and had been a rodeo rider. He acted in 218 movies and directed 9 films. Many of his present day Fans believe that there is more reality of the Old West in his movies than in many of the modern big budget (million $,s) spectacles. We admire his genuine honesty and natural sense of humor. Hoot had his greatest popularity in the 1920,s and his salary was usually $14,500 per week ( source IMDb Biography page which also contains much more fascinating additional information). By 1933, the Western movie was out of fashion and so "The Dude Bandit" was made as a B film. .Also Hoot was older ( he was 42 ) and not as agile. But to us, plain folk fans, Hoot is still great and we get lots of enjoyment from this movie
