I thought it was great, and here's why.
25 October 2001 | by (KELLER, TEXAS) – See all my reviews

Gary Cooper, along with very few others in Hollywood (at the time this movie was made, 1945) had the ability of so many facial and physical nuances of comic dimensions as Coop did. Being old enough to have seen this movie on it's original release (and I did) you might say, this was an early satire of what characters of the old west were really like. The cast was very well selected for the time, and very well performed. Also, the fact that Coop himself produced, and as America was definitely needing a belly laugh, I felt this to be an excellent vehicle for all involved and a welcome film of comedic entertainment. Concerning the poorly made studio riding sequences, how else to get the point across on a limited budget. Thanks for listening.
