Dan and Doc are incompetent desperados who plan to give crime one more try before going straight. Miss Amity Babb is the shapely toast of Empty Cup, Colorado who sets prices by Wall Street, never loses at poker, and rules the town (and the sheriff) with a cash register in a velvet glove. When Amity and our two heroes meet, the slapstick burlesque of Western cliches grows ever wilder... Written by

I only saw this flick once under not the worst circumstances, but remember most of the plot. I was in the dayroom of a NIKE air defense site watching a 16mm Armed Forces Motion Picture Service print with my battery buddies, half bombed on PX beer and in a jolly mood.
The plot is very simple, the two perpetrators, Rowan and Martin, of later TV fame, play two hapless rustlers who steal a big herd, drive it into town, and then can't sell it because the bottom has dropped out of the market. Everytime they try to abandon the herd,and take a powder out of town, they keep being brought back and charged more and more for cattle feed and care.
This is ten steps above a Three Stooges movie and just as riotous, but I don't remember any great lines, after all this time, but the flick has stuck with me all these years. You can be assured that there are some good cracks. Those fellows were witty.
This is well worth a rental. Best viewed in raucous company on a weekend afternoon. And bring lots of beer and popcorn; they well enhance the effect.
