Ass-breaker Dingus Magee is looking for a gold train when he comes upon old acquaintance Hoke Birdsill on stage to San Francisco, and robs him of his money. Hoke goes to the nearby town of Yerkey's Hole, where Belle Knops is both mayor and bordello-mistress. She appoints Hoke Town Sheriff and tries to get him to stir up the Indians so the soldiers at the nearby fort (the main customers) won't go to Little Big Horn. Dingus tries to stir up more trouble and get involved with the pale, baby-talking Indian, Anna. The film is a send-up of the oft-repeated phrase "the Code of the West" and exaggerates it and what it stands for into the ridiculousness that it is. Written by

Dingus Billy Magee was written as a 19-year-old, and had to be re-written to accommodate Frank Sinatra's casting. See more »
In several shots during the cavalry troop scene, Anna is replaced by an obvious stunt double wearing skin-colored tights, including when Dingus and Anna run their horses into the wagon 'half-moon', and when driving the gunpowder wagon away from the cavalry. See more »
It has been a long time since I watched the movie (at least 5 years) I thought it was quite good. Fun to watch. The movie was full of action and was amazing how it was built around a derby hat. Sure seemed that who had the derby, was in for nothing but trouble. The list of actors was quite amazing as it was full of big time actors. I would love to see it again. I am hoping my brother has the movie still. He is the one who had it to begin with. I liked the movie a lot more than my wife did. She thought it was silly. I found it caused me to laugh all threw it. It is sure a movie worth watching again.
I sure do recommend that you see this movie. In my opinion, it is a good movie.
