A clever comedy Western
14 December 1998 | by (Carlisle) – See all my reviews

This film is a comedy Western with a witty dialogue and an intriguing plot. I haven't seen it since it first appeared on TV, but I remember it as a very enjoyable movie which I would love to see again. Jack Elam plays his usual role, similar to the part he played in 'Support Your Local Sheriff', though this time he is the sheriff himself. A gem that ought to be shown again.
