The idea for the picture came about when producer Jed Buell overheard an employee of his production company, Spectrum Pictures, bemoaning the state of the film business and remarking that "if this economy doesn't turn around, we'll have to start making pictures with midgets". Buell loved the idea and put in motion what eventually became this film. See more »

it's surprising to me how much this movie gets ripped on saying it is an exploitation of little people. honestly, this is a classic western story; good guy in white, bad guy in black. it wasn't made as a comedy, but is it funny? yes it can be, for the novelty of it. is it a blockbuster? now, just an average 'B' western from the 30's, but definitely worth watching at least once.
i enjoy this movie not because it exploits anyone, but that they did go to great detail to make a story, a drama with an all midget cast. these are the same little people that were in the "Wizard of Oz", so they got to do a classic kind of film. this unique type of movie is one that will never be copied or re-done due to peoples stereotypes, it's an original.
I'm not saying it's some masterpiece, but it is definitely worth seeing once!
