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!" Written by

Patience repeatedly says she wants to attend "Miss Hunter's College on the Hudson River, New York, For Young Ladies of Good Families." Hunter College was named for its founder and first president Thomas Hunter (not a "miss") and at the time of the movie was still known as the "Female Normal and High School." See more
Patience, you got to stop shooting at people. You know something? If you wasn't such a terrible shot, there wouldn't be a young man alive in all of Purgatory. I heard you shot at Elmer Price in the lobby of the hotel yesterday evening.
Well, he asked me to marry him!
You think that's reason enough to shoot at a man?
