Doc Hooker's Bunch Details


Doc Hooker's Bunch is a low-budget western farce about a travelling medicine show. The mission of Doc Hooker and his bunch is to entertain ranchers and cavalry soldiers--thereby anticipating the USO by some sixty years. When business slows down, Hooker and company can always count on a little larceny to fill the coffers. Among the stars of Doc Hooker's Bunch is veteran western sidekick [[Performer~P69995~Dub Taylor~dubtaylor]], and Dub's son [[Performer~P69994~Buck Taylor~bucktaylor]], the latter best known for his recurring role as Newly O'Brien on TV's Gunsmoke. This 88 minute "regional" quickie was not seen on a nationwide basis until sold to television in the mid-1980s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
