A genuine " sleeper "
20 October 1999 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

This is simply a charming , funny movie . Robert Taylor is exceptionally good - as is the supporting cast in general. Well-made Western comedies seem few and far between .

The movie was not well publicized upon its release as I recall , nor was it rated as top flight . It's hardly ever seen on television.

The film can easily be described as wholesome - a rarity more today than back in the 50's . Its tone and style reflect the mood of the times.

By all means , catch it if you can .
