Momma’s boy William ‘Peaceful’ Patton (Hoot Gibson) is a quiet-living pacifist who quits his job as a ranch hand when range war breaks out. When a drought drives all cattlemen to Green Valley, William, now a foreman at Senora Isabel Martinez’s ranch, quickly follows - only to be mistaken for his look-alike, the murderous Hard Hombre. This mistaken identity works in William’s favor as he distributes the range among ranchmen - till the real Hard Hombre rides into town!..

MPAA Ratings: Approved
"It is difficult to imagine a western without gun-smoke, but director Otto Brower has managed to do just that – make a thrilling western that replaces bullets with humor. Hoot Gibson’s charm, fame and outstanding adaptability ensured the movie’s success despite an unusual plot. The hilarious narrative has Hoot play William ‘Peaceful’ Patton, a cowboy still tied to his mother’s apron strings, who hates fighting – either with his fists or guns. As a matter of fact, you witness very few scenes in which he totes a six-shooter. Hoot’s magic is on display as he shuttles adroitly between playing a mild, peace-loving cowhand and the tough talking Hard Hombre. In between, you are treated to one humorous episode after another as the charming William Patton makes good use of his mistaken identity to mete out justice among the riotous cattlemen. A2ZCDS brings you an unusual old western thriller, which will have you in splits when you are not guessing about who the real Hard Hombre is. "
"Truly a welcome departure from the hackneyed spaghetti Western format. I’m impressed by how ‘The Hard Hombre’ makes me take a second look at the meaning of courage. Hoot Gibson plays the antitypical, pacifist cowpuncher to perfection. You can have my vote for this classic film anytime."
Colleen D. Murphy (Atlanta, GEORGIA)
"I found ‘The Hard Hombre’ refreshingly different because it upholds real values in a funny, yet thought-provoking way. One tends to get weary of how little Westerns have changed over the years, and this one is a timeless breath of fresh air all the way...."
