Tycoon Van Fleet Stooglehammer, owner of the Green Valley silver mine, sends his mild-mannered, milquetoast bookkeeper, Spade Cooley, out to investigate the robberies of his silver-wagons ... See full summary »
It takes place in Texas after the Civil War, but we can not really consider this little movie as a western. No many gunshots or fights of any kind. But it is an amusing feature about a widow whom nearly everyone suspects to be insane.
More comedy, oater, than action picture. Universal produced it, in color, with his usual stars such as Howard Duff, Mona Freeman, Gene Lockhart...
The scene in the court hall with the polecat is unforgettable. Very amusing.
In short, it's an unusual, weird little movie which remains to be shown more often.
