Storyline

Gunfights and electric guitars in the Old West? You bet! Zachariah gets a mail order gun, practices a little, and kills a man in the local saloon. He and his friend Matthew set out to become gunfighters, joining with the Crackers, a rock band who are also (pitifully inept) stage robbers. Having quickly outgrown that gang, Zachariah and Matthew set out to become bigtime gunslingers. Before long, they part company and a rivalry grows between them. Written by George S. Davis <mgeorges@prodigy.net>

This "far out" western is a comical, musical, must see film.
27 December 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this film in 1971 I was blown away by the cast, the dialogue (which is almost embarrasing, but fun to listen to now), and the music. Don Johnson and John Rubenstein did an incredible job as wannabe gunslingers and comic moments from the likes of Country Joe were classic. Musically, performances by The James Gang, Elvin Bishop, The New York Rock n Roll Ensemble, etc..., rounded off this film nicely. The plot was predictable, as most are, but the ride was a memorable one. I throw this in the VHS player every once in a while and I'm never sorry I did...
