This movie has all the classic elements usually found in westerns of the 1930's - 1950's. The dashing hero, the fair damsel in need of rescuing, the despised villain, singing, dancing, the big chase scene. It's all here. But, the one thing that separates this movie from any other western is the cast. 100% midgets. Yep, this entire movie is cast with actors under the height of 4 feet 8 inches, with a couple of fellas who just might make three feet.
The hook of this movie is the fact that it's all midgets. The dialog and actions could be found in any western made in this time period. Nothing is outstanding about this movie, but then nothing is bad about it. It's just something different. Although, you haven't seen a true chase scene until you see a group of guys chasing each other on Shetland ponies.
