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.

The music in this is fantastic. Guy Mitchell did the sound-track.
This is a great movie. The music was sung by Guy Mitchell with all original songs. Great music and a funny movie. If you like comedy westerns this is a great one.
I can't get over the music though. Guy Mitchell had one of the best voices ever. And these original songs are classic. Wish I could get a hold of the sound-track.
There will never be another Bob Hope. Seems like comedy today is nothing but dirt. Bob's was clean and funny and adult. This is probably the best comedy western ever completed by Hope. Too bad they couldn't keep the original cameos i.e. Gene Autry was in the original at the ending gunfight.
