Movie Info

The plot is in the title of Cowboy Counselor. Hoot Gibson plays a shiftless galoot who tries to make something of himself for the sake of his sister Sheila Mannors. Gibson sells law books door to door, which gets him mixed up with outlaws. Typically, this Gibson vehicle downplays action for the sake of comedy; much of the suspense derives from whether or not Hoot will pick up a gun to defend himself (he never wore a holster, you know). Hoot Gibson's comic sidekick in Cowboy Counselor is Skeeter Bill Robbins, who died shortly after the film was completed.
