Silent screen cowboy Hoot Gibson handled situation comedy better than any of his rivals, with the possible exception of Tom Mix. Many of Gibson's film's were rural farces rather than outright westerns and usually highlighted the star's bumbling attempts to woo a pretty girl. That is exactly what happens in The Hurricane Kid. "The Hooter" loves blond Marian Nixon but the lady has eyes only for slick foreman William A. Steele. That is, until the foreman is unmasked as a crook, and Gibson wins the Big Race. In typical Gibson style, the villain is defeated without a single shot being fired, or any other kind of violence, and a good time was had by all. Leading lady Marian Nixon later signed a contract with Fox and was marketed as that studio's possible replacement for an often recalcitrant Janet Gaynor.
