Throw in Russell as "Mike", the luscious head of a gang of thieves, and Roy Rogers as a federal marshal hot on her trail. Written by
Bob Hope offered the role of Mike to Maureen O'Hara but she turned it down. O'Hara loved the script but was going through an unhappy period in her marriage and felt that she would not be able to be funny in the film. See more »

This hilarious western spoof is wickedly funny, marvellously self-aware, and doesn't want to admit to knowing the meaning of the fourth wall.
Hope works well with Roy Rogers--and of course Jane Russel is a sight not to be missed. Personally, I liked her better in the raider get-up, fully ensconsed in her role as villain. She keeps us guessing right up till the end whether she's going to shoot Hope or kiss him. What a movie!
I can't tell you any of the gags, or any of the string of one liners Bob Hope starts the movie with and doesn't let up with at all, ever. It would just hurt you too much.
If you haven't seen this movie and think would like to, go watch it. If you consider Bob Hope unfunny, and long for subtler entertainment, go set your pants on fire, you philistine, and give yourself some culture.
