Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Hoot Gibson's first 1932 western was the breezy The Gay Buckaroo. The ol' Hooter plays Clint Hale, a rancher in love with winsome Mildred Field (Merna Kennedy), the daughter of his best customer. But Mildred is sweet on suave gambler Dave Dumont (Roy D'Arcy), who happens to be a crook. Ultimately, Clint forces Dave to reveal his true colors, leading to the inevitable Ride Into the Sunset with sweet Mildred. With characters like "Hi Low," "Faro," and "Sporty Bill," one might conclude that Gay Buckaroo was a stray Damon Runyon yarn.
