Storyline

James Garner plays a ladies' man who ends up on the run from a conquest. He has an embarrassing problem that requires a doctor, but that is not immediately disclosed. He and a town barsweep form a plot to impersonate a well known gunfighter so that Garner can pay off his debts and skip town before the soon to come arrival of the real gunfighter. The cast is almost identical to Support Your Local Sheriff! (1969) and the humor is similar. Typical: "You hit him from behind!" Garner: "Just as hard as I could!"

Goofs

The first time that Latigo places a bet on the roulette table, the dealer calls for the saloon owner, who pours himself a glass of Cutty Sark whiskey before agreeing to cover the bet. The film takes place in frontier-era Colorado in the late 1800's. However, Cutty Sark whiskey wasn't introduced until 1923. See more »

better than the original
22 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is probably one of the few sequels that is better than the original. The same director is back and most of the cast from the first one but a different leading lady with Suzanne Pleshette. They play different characters from the first one and John Dehner is the villain this time instead of Walter Brennan. Garner arrives in a mining town and everyone thinks he's the gunfighter Swifty Morgan sent for by Dehner. Garner becomes friends with Jack Elam and the next thing he knows Suzanne Pleshette is trying to shoot him or run him down. Garner doesn't know why but eventually finds out. It's a pretty good movie that is better than the original, which was a little overrated.
