Storyline

Both Jack Horton's father and then his brother have been killed with an ace of clubs left on their body. Attracted to McGill's newly arrived niece, Jack visits her and finds the two decks of cards with the club aces missing. Having been spotted by McGill's men who were rustling the Horton cattle, he apparently becomes the next victim when a club ace is placed on his unconcious body.

The Deuce you Say!
28 September 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

An unintentionally hilarious comedy-mystery-western of how Hoxie's family is being murdered by the evil MacGill family in a range war: Hoxie is trying to figure out who is killing off his relatives and pinning a playing card to the corpses with, apparently, never a thought as to motivation.

Of course Hoxie and the chief MacGill's pretty niece fall in love with each other. The deliberate humor in this one involves a small white dog biting people, and the niece whacking people on the head with a frying pan. Hoxie's horse seems to have a bored expression on his face during the medium shots. Perhaps I'm projecting.
