There is no way they would have left the back of the house unguarded for so long, after burning them out they would have the house surrounded. See more »
(I don't know if I've ever seen "camp" used [as the base word of "campiness"], but yes this is intentional camp.) The criticism some have that this 60's movie will remind one of the campy westerns of the 30's is as valid as the criticism that Austin Powers (of the 2000's) will remind one of the spy flicks of the 60's and 70's. Pre "Hawaii 5-0" (i.e. potential good career) Jack Lord is always a treat, and the tongue-in-cheek homage to just about every Western cliche you can think of makes for a nice little watch. This movie wasn't intended to be anything but extremely light fun, which it succeeds in being. Get a little alcohol in you and enjoy!
