The climactic gunfight features cameos by Bing Crosby and surprise appearances by actors who, at the time, were starring or had recently starred in extremely popular Western television series (such as Maverick (1957), The Roy Rogers Show (1951), Annie Oakley (1954)) and Western movies such as High Noon (1952) (Gary Cooper).

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.
