At the James' farm, Milford kills a gila monster. The gila monster is found only in the deserts of the American southwest and northwest Mexico. Jesse James's farm was in Missouri (in both the film and real life). See more »
Farnsworth, what do you expect to achieve with such crass ineptitude, such utter incompetence, such colossal stupidity?
Well, I was hoping to become your assistant.

Enjoyed this very funny Western Film with Bob Hope, ( Milford Farnsworth) starring as a life insurance salesman who sells a policy to Jesse James, (Wendell Corey) the famous gangster cowboy. Milford Farnswoth also follows Jesse James West to see that Jesse stays alive. Milford gets himself adjusted to the West and meets up with a very pretty young woman named Cora Lee Collins, (Rhonda Fleming). Cora Lee happens to be the saloon singer and girlfriend of Jesse James and Milford gets himself involved with a marriage ceremony and makes a good job of having the Bride run away with him and the funny thing is that Jesse James future wife Cora Lee happens to be the bride. There are plenty of cameos of famous actors in this film, namely: Trigger, the horse of Roy Rogers and Roy Rogers, James Arness, Ward Bond, Gary Cooper and Bing Crosby. This is a great entertaining film and you will not want to miss this film if you have never view this film. Enjoy.
