MPAA Ratings: Passed
"This engrossing action-packed vintage western does credit to the directional capabilities of Otto Brower and the highly acclaimed acting abilities of Hoot Gibson, who was sometimes dubbed the "Clown Prince" because of the laughs and thrills he provoked among the audience.
The plot is ingenious and way ahead of its times. It certainly would make a modern day scriptwriter proud. Hoot Gibsonís rendering of a rancher who is cheated out of his insurance money by the railroad is characteristically believable. His bumbling sidekicks provide some comic breaks in a tense drama, while Hooper Atchley and Edward Hearn hold the story together with a commendable portrayal of two clever but bankrupt brothers who turn to devious means to protect their business interests.
Experience this fascinating, action-packed western from A2ZCDS, which will amuse and enthrall you with its fascinating plot and some outstanding screen performances. "
"I was both infuriated by poor Hootís dilemma and tickled half to death by how he holds his own. I think this is the ultimate, one-episode situational comedy. This old movie classic (ĎThe Local Bad Maní) is a laff riot and a must-see flick, especially for those who love Hoot Gibsonís endearingly unassuming style."
Theodore Warbuck (Milford, DELAWARE)
"Boy, did I need a movie like ĎThe Local Bad Maní after all the outlandish stuff Iíve been watching lately. This is good, old-fashioned storytelling and vintage funny fare. Hollywood could do with a Hoot Gibson today. Good going, A2ZCDS..."
