A rare jewel of a comedy.
11 April 2001 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in the early seventies with a number of friends at Portland State University. I've seen it once and only once. Still, I can easily say it is one of the ten funniest movies ever. I am amazed to find it in your database! It is indeed a broad parody of the western movie genre: cliche piled upon cliche, yet still surprising and delightful. This movie can hold its own with Dr. Strangelove and The Marx Brothers. Its that good. I don't know where PSU got their hands on a dubbed in version, but if there is one out there on video tape, I know a lot of people who would do almost anything for a copy.
