Ross Bodine and Frank Post are cowhands on Walt Buckman's R-Bar-R ranch. Bodine is older and broods a bit about how he will get along when he's too old to cowboy. Post is young and rambunctious and ambitious for a better life than wrangling cows. When one of their fellow cowboys is killed in a corral accident, Post suggests a way into a better life for himself and his friend: robbing a bank. Bodine reluctantly joins in the plan and the two contrive to rob the local bank. They make good their escape initially, but Walt Buckman and his two sons, John and Paul, are incensed at this betrayal by their own trusted employees. John and Paul set out to bring Bodine and Post to justice. Written by

You show me an old cowboy, a young cowboy or an in between cowboy with more than a few dollars in his poke and I'll show a cowboy that stopped being a cowboy and robbed banks.
Well, let's rob us a bank.
It'll be safer than getting married.

This movie tried but just didn't make it as a good classic western. The problem with this story is it couldn't decide what it really wanted to be, a comedy or action.
The first half of the movie had the comedy and the two good old boy's stuff, but then it drifted off in a different direction that never really fit into the movie.
I personally think the movie would have been better if they made it about the sheriff played by Victor French. Victor played the sheriff with a touch of magic and should have gotten at least a nod for best supporting actor that year. I'm not saying he was better than Ben Johnson, but Leonard Frey or Richard Jaeckal, please.
This movie is to long and has to many dead spots in the end. It looks like Blake was looking for a ending and just through something in, it could have been a lot better. If you have nothing to do and have a couple of hours to kill, why not, but don't expect much.
