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

After completing this film, Frank Sinatra took a 7-year acting hiatus until the 1977 TV movie "Contract On Cherry Street". 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 »
Frank Sinatra Covorts with Indian Women while the Sheriff of a Whore Town chases him around Texas
Yes. That's the whole movie. Sinatra tries (sometimes unsuccessfully) to have sexual relations with several Native American women. Meanwhile, the sheriff of a town full of prostitutes chases him around in search of buried treasure.
Based on a true story.
It has some funny lines, and there is slapstick to boot. Not a bad film if you really have nothing better to do with your time, but I wouldn't have paid money to see it when it premiered back in 1922 (even if it did only cost a half-penny for talkie). OK, seriously, this movie isn't that old, nor is it that funny. If you like westerns and Frank Sinatra, then maybe this film is for you.
