HERALD, SATURDAY, JANUARY 3, 1959-5 Hoot Gibson's Limp No Block to Role in 'Horse Soldiers' By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Hoot Gibson is back before the movie cameras, and that news should evoke a flock of memories from veteran movie goers. TV viewers, too. The Hoot Gibcon westerns have been a staple in the television market since the early days of the medium. How does he look? Older, of course. Hoot marked his 66th birthday last August. And he's not as spry as he used to be. He re- broke a hip three years ago and it hasn't really healed. Painful Injury "I broke it the first time when I crashed in the air races in Los Angeles in 1933," he recalled. "Three years ago, I was climbing up a ridge on a horse. The horse slipped, and I couldn't get out from under. I smashed all the cartilage in the joint." Hoot now has to limp along, and that's exasperating to a man who has devoted his life to speed. But he's still agile enough to be making his 275th film, his first in six years. He's making "The Horse Soldiers" for John Ford, who directed Hoot's first big film, "Action," in 1022. Real Westerner What a life he has had. He's a real Westerner, born and reared in Tekamah, Neb. He got his nickname as a kid, because he liked to hunt for hoot owls in caves. At 16, he left home to drive horses from Nevada to California. "Then I got started riding in rodeos," he said. "I'd do that in the summer, then come to Hollywood in the winter and ride in pictures. Started down here in 1910. It was pretty good money— $5 a day, and $2.50 if you had to fall off the horse." Hoot became one of the great Western stars in the era that in- cluded Tom Mix, Tim McCoy, Buck Jones and Ken Maynard. Lives in Las Vegas After finishing a long series for Monogram in 1945, he quit films. He came back briefly to play in "The Marshal's Daughter" for Ken Murray, but has devoted most of his time to real estate and oil interests. "My wife and I live in Las Vegas now," he said. "No, I don't miss Hollywood at all. Too much smog." It was in Las Vegas that Hoot saw his old friend Ford. The director suggested that Hoot play the blacksmith in "The Horse Soldiers." Hoot hesitated, saying his bad hip wouldn't allow him to climb up on a horse. We'll get a couple of cowhands who can throw you up on the horse," Ford replied. So now Hoot's back in the tad- die, right where he belongs. I Network Television 1 — _ - — — «•• wejatuwwe^m^H^n^g Wednesday, Jan. 7 (C) Mean: program a in Colo* 6:05 a.m. S — David Stone 6:30 ».i».
