Goofs

Obviously oscillating shadows in 3 successive scenes (all looking south) indicate poor continuity. As Juan de la Vega rides into town toward the Agry Saloon the shadows are toward the right indicating a morning shot. Right after Roy Agry is shot by Juan, the Sheriff and his men are seen running across the street toward the saloon; this time shadows are to the left (an afternoon shot) and there are clouds visible. A moment later Juan is shown running out of the Saloon and the shadows have switched back to the right (morning shot) and the sky has cleared up. See more »

very funny western, best appreciated if you've seen others in the series
10 October 2000 | by (Los Angeles, Calif.) – See all my reviews

Hilarious low-budget western, really more of a comedy than a western. This came midway through the excellent series of westerns directed by Budd Boetticher and starring Randolph Scott, and this time around everyone involved seemed to take a breather and just have fun with the story elements. All the westerns are humorous, but not as much as this one. Burt Kennedy, who wrote the best scripts in the series, rewrote this one, uncredited. The picture is best appreciated if you first see THE TALL T, SEVEN MEN FROM NOW, RIDE LONESOME, and COMANCHE STATION.
