Jake (Jack Elam's) back pack changes. He is seen with, what appears to be, a frying pan on the back of the pack with Jake carrying his shovel in his hand. He flips some dynamite into a stream, and in the next scene is seen wading into the stream to get the fish that popped to the surface. His pack back now, has the shovel tied to the back and no frying pan. See more »

You know... he strikes me as bein' a lonely man.
Lonely? Danby? Why he's a mean, no-good, lowdown bushwhacker!

This is a great film to have in your collection and to pull out when you have guests with varied tastes. Fantastic screenplay, staging, pacing and, most of all, incredible acting, all come together to make this a nearly perfect film. Someone says, "I don't like Westerns," you tell them this is a western "spoof" and really more of a brain-over-brawn and romance than a western in the classical sense. Another says, "I'm getting tired of romantic-comedies," you tell them that it's not the main storyline, and the romance is just another part of the spoof. There are some well-staged and funny action scenes and lots of witty dialogue. Whatever a person likes, it is in here; and whatever a person may not like, there is not so much of it in here to dominate the movie, and so much else to enjoy. Get this one in your video library as soon as possible...
