Stale, unfunny but only film featuring Fernandel in the Wild West
19 December 2004 | by (Montigny-lès-Metz, France) – See all my reviews

The theme of the decent everyman happening to be the lookalike of a dangerous outlaw is not new and Fernandel himself capitalized on the trick in Verneuil's 1953 "L'Ennemi public N°1". So expect no great discovery from this slow-paced, unfunny comedy. It has really nothing to do with the classic of the genre, Ford's "The whole town's talking". On the other hand, the reconstruction of the Wild West by art director Robert Giordani is above average ( not so bad for a French picture ) and it is rather unexpected to see our Fernand from Marseille move in such exotic settings and exchange lines with British Adrienne Corri, Spanish Eleonora Vargas and American born Jess Hahn !
